Baby Doll

Type: New Blu-Ray

Times are tough for cotton miller Archie (Karl Malden), but at least he has his child bride (Carroll Baker), who will soon be his wife in title and truth. The one year agreement keeping them under the same roof, yet never in the same bed, is about to end. But a game with a sly business rival (Eli Wallach) is about to begin. In Baby Doll, as in A Streetcar Named Desire, director Elia Kazan and writer Tennessee Williams broke new ground in depicting sexual situations, earning condemnation from the then powerful Legion of Decency. They earned laurels too: four Academy Award® nominations, Golden Globe® Awards for Baker and Kazan, and a British Academy Award for Wallach. Watch this funny, steamy classic that, as Leonard Maltins Movie Guide proclaims, still sizzles.
