Wednesday Biography: Tennessee Williams Documentary

Born in March, 1911, in Columbus Mississippi, Tennessee Williams is perhaps the greatest, undisputed genius playwright of the twentieth century. His plays “kept Broadway alive” in the 1950’s, with such classics as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, A Streetcar Named Desire, Sweet Bird of Youth, Night of the Iguana, The Rose Tatoo and The Glass Menagerie. His wildly successful plays were made into blockbuster movies, bringing him fame and fortune.

Bedridden by diphtheria in boyhood, his mother gave him classic literature to read; thus began his lifelong affair with the written word which eventually led to his winning the Tony Award and a Pulitzer Prize.

This documentary appears in 4 parts, all of which appear here.
