We'll junk the historical
junk this week. There are
a couple of friends to intro

Walden Cabbin, who recent
ly remarked, as he
pondered the merit of the
effort of merit, tr the lack
of same, or the lack of "en
thusiasm for cultural en
listment": "If you would learn to
speak all tongues and con
form to the customs of all
nations, if you would travel
farther than all travellers,
be naturalized in all climes,
and cause the Sphinx to
dash her head against a
stone, even obey the pre
cept of the old philosopher,
and Explore thyself. Here
in are demanded the eye
and the nerve."
Cabbin was commenting
at that point, unheard, on
a type of cultural basis
which has backboned
America, but the crowd

By Phil Boroff
Tennessee Williams is per
haps America's most popu
lat playwright. His plays are
continually produced "A
Streetcar Named Desire" a
recent success of University
Since the late 1940's, the
filmgoing audience has
made the name Tennessee
Williams a boxoffice plus.
The first Williams play
transferred to film was
"The Glass Menagerie,"
which starred Jane Wyman,
Gertrude Lawrence, Kirk
Douglas and Arthur Ken
nedy, The second and per
haps most successful Wil
liams adaptation was 1951's
"A Streetcar Named De
sire," featuring Vivien
Leigh, Marlon Brando, Karl
Maiden and Kim Hunter.
The 50's saw several Wil
liams' plays adapted to the
screen "The Rose Tattoo"
with Anna Magnani and
Burt Lancaster, "Cat on a
Hot Tin Roof" with Eliza
beth Taylor, Paul Newman
and Burl Ives, and "Sud
denly, Last Summer" with
Elizabeth Taylor, Katharine
Hepburn and Montgomery
In 1960, "The Fugitive
Kind" starring Marlon
Brando, Anna Magnani and
Joanne Woodward was
based on Williams' "Orphe
us Descending."
Filming has already been
completed on "Summer and
Smoke" with Laurence Har
vey and Geraldine Page and
also on the screen version
of Williams' lone novel,
"The Roman Spring of Mrs.
Stone" with Vivien Leigh
and Warren Beatty.
And this is not the end
plans are on the board for
screen versions of "Sweet
Bird of Youth" and "A Pe
riod of Adjustment." By the
way, the name of Williams'
new play to open in the fall
is "The Night of the
Iguana." . . .
Tuesday evening's Du
Pont Show of the Month
was "The Night of the
Storm" by Horton Foote.
The production was very
entertaining and included
and outstanding cast head
ed by Julie Harris, Jo Van
Fleet, E. G. Marshall and
Mildred Dunnock. I particu
larly liked the concluding
two speeches "Come in.
. . . You might learn some
thing." (Reply) "Thank
you, I think I will." . . .
I think everyone interest
ed in theater should have a
spring vacation like mine.
I am currently in New Ha
ven, Connecticutt with sev
eral other University stu
dents at the Yale University
Drama Festival through
Sunday. New week we will
be in New York City on a
theater holiday. More about
this later. . . .
