Suddenly, Last Summer - Limited Edition Blu Ray Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Directed by Joseph L Mankiewicz (Dragonwyck, All About Eve, Cleopatra) from the play by Tennessee Williams (A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) and brilliantly adapted for the screen by Gore Vidal (Ben-Hur, Myra Breckinridge), Suddenly, Last Summer casts three of Hollywood's most iconic talents (Elizabeth Taylor, Katharine Hepburn, Montgomery Clift) in a daring and often delirious mix of lurid drama and Gothic horror. Sensational and wildly controversial at the time of its release, Suddenly, Last Summer now stands as a classic and stills packs a provocative... punch.

Her Aunt, Violet Venable (Katharine Hepburn) wishes to suppress the truth of her son's death and will stop at nothing to ensure that the real story of how her son came to die does not surface. To prevent Catherine from releasing this information, she bribes a psychiatric doctor with the promise of financing a new wing in his hospital if he admits Catherine and performs a lobotomy on her.
