Flowers for the Dead

That carefully lit silhouette shot of the old flower woman outside of Stanley and Stella’s place gets me every time. That and Alex North‘s haunting, half-eerie music, especially towards the end when “maybe you wouldn’t be so bad to interfere with” comes up.

One thought on “Flowers for the Dead

  1. Edward on said:

    This has always seemed to me like a filmed play, rather than a play adapted for the screen. I think the music overly emphasizes the melodramatic aspects of the play. I’d prefer it be more naturalistic, if that’s possible with Tennessee Williams.
