About A Streetcar named Desire

 
 
 
Tandy vs. Tennessee

An exchange of letters between Williams and the first actress to play Blanche, about a postcard.

 
  "When the original production of A Streetcar Named Desire was in the  midst of success, Tennessee Williams wrote to Jessica Tandy  ("Blanche"), about a photo that was intended to be given as a Christmas gift to the producer, Irene Selznick. Williams was asked to  see if Jessica Tandy (who later appeared in Driving Miss Daisy) would  pose for a photographic replica of a Thomas Hart Benton painting. The painting depicts the poker scene from A Streetcar Named Desire with Blanche in the foreground in a racy blue dress (Left).  Through a series of letter exchanges, Jessica Tandy reminds Tennessee Williams that his Blanche was not intended to appear as a  victim.
