Tennessee Williams Films, Now in One Box Set

Blanche depending on the kindness of strangers; Maggie and Brick trying to get on Big Daddy's good side. Those moments and others are now available in a DVD box set of films based on the plays of Tennessee Williams.

NPR's Bob Mondello says the collection is a reminder of the impact that one of America's great playwrights had on Hollywood.
