The Eccentricities of a Nightingale back to product details

A Warbling Strangeness

Like the proverbial bird in the gilded cage who finally got away, Alma escapes into the arms of her doctor neighbor, a former bad boy, who looks at her in wonder. As a superior American playwright, Tennessee Williams manipulates language in metaphor, illusion, and devastation for turn-of-the-century Mississippi. This revised version of his play, Summer and Smoke, seems more naturalistic than the forbearer. This is a filmed version for PBS and very stagy, but there are close-ups and two shots. Watch for the impersonation of Tennessee himself. If one listens hard enough, the songs of ancestors can be heard.
