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 in the beginning a author for the degree, and this reissue of his unique screenplay for the Elia Kazan motion picture of Baby Doll is now observed through the script of the full-length level play, Tiger Tail, constructed from that screenplay through the ’70s. The textual content, which contains the author’s ultimate revisions, files the play because it used to be produced on the Hippodrome Theatre Workshop in Gainesville, Florida, in 1979.
