Baby doll

Baby Doll is essentially a black comedy about a bizarre and cruel romantic triangle drawn from two early one act plays by Tennessee Williams set in the Deep South. This is the Kazan film that most directly relates to his experimental work in the Actors Studio (Wallach, Baker and Malden were all Studio members) with a wealth of detail, a complexity of moods and an ambivalence in characterisation which contrasts with Kazan's self-acknowledged tendency to favour one character at the expense of another. The film is sensual but the eroticism is also paradoxical: Baby Doll is only dimly aware of her sexuality, a case of arrested development, while the would-be seducer, the Sicilian Vaccaro, is motivated more by revenge than sexual desire.
