3. Choose one or more main actor(s) and/or supporting actor(s) who did the finest (or worst) acting job. Defend your selection, basing your analysis on the four criteria for judging performance discussed in class and in your text.
4. Tennessee Williams thought that Marlon Brando’s portrayal of Stanley created a far more complex character. For example, Stanley is violent, abusive, rude, and a sexual predator; however, Marlon Brandon is typically considered to be very attractive, and he is remembered for his seemingly genuine plea to his wife to return home after a dispute. Does his
sex appeal and emotional performance complicate your opinion of Stanley?
5. What is it about this film that has you still thinking about it?
