Academy Awards 1964 - Best Costume Design (b&w)
Rating: 5/5 -- Hot, Hot, Hot!
Direction by John Huston is resourceful and dynamic as he sympathetically weaves together the often-vague and philosophical threads that mark Tennessee Williams' writing. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Brilliant, apart from some minor plot glitches. Full Review
Rating: 4/4 -- Would play well on a double-bill with Huston's The Misfits. Full Review
Film Freak Central
Rating: 4/5 -- Burton and Gardner star in heavily dramatic John Huston film.
No one but Tennessee Williams could have concocted it, but anyone other than John Huston should have directed it. Full Review
Films of Tennessee Williams' plays now often look very artificial and overwrought, but with this Huston came up with one of the best. Full Review
Description by OLDIES.com:
In a remote Mexican seacoast town, a fallen Episcopal priest struggles to pull his shattered life together. And three women - an earth hotel owner, an ethereal artist and a hot-eyed, willful teenager - can help save him. Or destroy him. With an outstanding cast headed by Richard Burton, Ava Gardner and Deborah Kerr, direction by legendary filmmaker John Huston and a steamy screenplay based on Tennessee Williams' acclaimed stage play, The Night of the Iguana pulses with conflicting passions and a surprising edge of knowing humor. Winner of one Academy Award and nominated for three more, the film explores the dark night of one man's soul - and illuminates the difference between dreams and the bittersweet surrender of reality.
A turbulent masterpiece adapted from the play by Tennessee Williams. A defrocked clergyman-turned-tour-guide takes a busload of pious Texan church ladies to an Eden-like spot along the coast of Mexico where he battles their suspicions about his past, his own demons, and a young girl whose affections could destroy him. Ava Gardner crackles as the woman who tries to keep him from being torn in two by heaven and earth. Academy Award Nominations: 4. Academy Awards: Best (black-and-White) Costume Design.
Description by Warner Home Video:
Night of the Iguana
In the sleepy village of Puerto Vallarta, the defrocked Reverend T. Laurence Shannon works as a tour guide. While leading a group of school teachers, he attracts the attention of their junior member Charlotte Goodall. To save money, he takes the group to a rundown hotel owned by his friend, Maxine Faulk. Once there, his interest shifts to Hannah Jelkes, a poor artist. But in the end it may be Maxine whom he stays on with.
Residing is a small hotel on the west coast of Mexico, Reverend T. Lawrence Shannon, a defrocked Episcopal preacher, hides from his lecherous past. He finds work as a tour guide for a group of American teachers, but soon comes under criticism from their prudish leader when an 18 year-old in her care starts lusting after him. Shannon also receives a good deal of attention from the seductive hotel owner. He spends most of his time, however, with an idealistic spinster and her 97 year-old grandfather. This wheel chair-bound poet claims that he will expire upon the completion of his final manuscript -- a literary endeavor he has been laboring on for the last twenty years.
