I’d read the Carson McCullers book a few years ago and realized there was a film from 1967 starring Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor, directed by John Huston. I finally got through it, and man, I thought it captured the feel of the book perfectly. Robert Forster was great in his first-ever film role as the peeping tom, Private Williams. Brando, you can hardly decipher, because not only is he mumbling, he’s mumbling in a Southern accent. But he gives one monologue towards the end about the world of man among men that knocked me out. Check it out if you get the chance.
