Tennessee Williams and Company: His Essential Screen Actors
John DiLeo ’82, Tennessee Williams and Company: His Essential Screen Actors (Hansen Publishing Group, 2010)
DiLeo’s fourth book takes a unique approach to examining films adapted from one of America’s greatest playwrights. Instead of simply analyzing the films, DiLeo focuses on 11 actors (such as Marlon Brando and Geraldine Page) who appeared in more than one of Williams’s movies and their mostly successful — but occasionally questionable — interpretations of his characters.
DiLeo is a contributing book reviewer for the Washington Post Book World and writes DVD and film-book reviews for three other publications.
