Description by

Times are tough for cotton-miller Archie (Karl Malden) but at least he has his child-bride (Carroll Baker), who'll 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 by the then-powerful Legion of Decency. They also 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 Maltin's Movie Guide proclaims, "still sizzles."

Product Description:

Still controversial, this adaptation of a Tennessee Williams play (by the playwright) caused an outrage upon its release. From this vantage point, Kazan's claustrophobic depiction of the sweaty competition between a dim cotton mill owner and his business rival for the attention of the mill owner's simpering child bride is less shocking than harrowing. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Actress--Carroll Baker, Best (Adapted) Screenplay.
