The taut, bright drama of a voluptuous child-bridge, who refuses to consummate her marriage to an older, down-on-his-luck cotton-gin proprietor in Tiger Tail County, Mississippi until eventually she is "ready," has won in humor and pathos through the years as society has stuck up with the author’s savagely sincere view of bigotry and lust within the rural South. yet Tennessee Williams used to be at the beginning a author for the level, and this reissue of his unique screenplay for the Elia Kazan motion picture of Baby Doll is now followed by means of the script of the full-length level play, Tiger Tail, built from that screenplay throughout the ’70s.
