considering brando was in the play of 'a streetcar named desire' for 2 years and 2 weeks, he gets an extra round of applause for making his big screen 'stanley' so fresh and immediate. his friend, actor karl malden, was in both productions and claims marlon was pleased jessica tandy did not make the transition from stage to screen. he felt vivien leigh brought some much needed sex into the equation. to look at this image i think i understand. it kinda looks like 'stanley's' asking if 'blanche' wants him to rip her dress off and she's saying, 'well, if you wouldn't mind.'
