Tonight’s feature film: Elia Kazan’s Baby Doll (I was shocked to find this in the film archives).
It stars Karl Malden, Carroll Baker, Eli Wallach and Mildred Dunnock. Screenplay by Tennessee Williams.
The story of the childlike bride of a Mississippi cotton gin owner, who becomes the pawn in a battle between her husband and his enemy.
I was fascinated with this movie when I first saw it as a kid on the Late Movie – of course most of it went over my head. Baker was all that and Malden was one sick bastard.
The thumbsucking got to me.
If you wish to switch off the movie – it starts automatically – click

Of all the gin joints, in all the world …………..
