Baby Doll (Warner Brothers, 1956). Based on Tennessee Williams's controversial play,"27 Wagons Full of Cotton," this is the story of "Baby Doll" Meighan (Carroll Baker), a 19-year old virgin who refuses to sleep with her husband Archie (Karl Malden) until she's 20. But when Archie burns down the cotton gin of rival Silva Vacarro (Eli Wallach, in his film debut), the Sicilian takes a unique form of revenge involving Archie's child bride. Upon its release, the movie was condemned by the Legion of Decency for "carnal suggestiveness," and by "Time Magazine" who called it, "just possibly the dirtiest American-made motion picture that has ever been legally exhibited." Today, it's seen as a true classic, and one of director Elia Kazan's greatest works, with electrifying performances by everyone in the cast, with an Oscar nomination for Baker. Top marked "BEN ALI THEATRE STARTS THURS. JAN. 10". Framed 23.5" x 15.5". Sheet size approximately 22" x 14".Printed in lower right corner "57/17".
