Tennessee Williams’ entire Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece now can be seen for the first time completely unedited in this first “CBS Playhouse 90s” presentation. Prior filmmakers were ordered to cut controversial scenes – even resulting in a different ending as in the landmark film that propelled Marlon Brando to fame.Travel to the sultry streets of New Orleans and discover the family secrets that shaped the character of Blanche DuBois (Golden Globe® winner Jessica Lange), a seductive yet faded Southern belle who shows up at her sister’s door desperate and destitute. Struggling to weave an air of sophistication, Blanche’s façade doesn’t fool her crude, street-savvy brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski (Alec Baldwin), and he torments her with devastating effect. For solace, she turns to her sister, Stella (Diane Lane), whose loyalties are torn between her husband and Blanche, and to Mitch (John Goodman), a kind but lonely man who offers Blanche what could be her last chance for happiness.
