Madame?

Pain!

Injection!

Getting Goforth on the phone!

Shove the phone! What I want

Goforth on, is film and tape.

You idiot birdbrain,

get your butt on the boat.

How did you get aboard?

I, uh, just missed the boat

she sent for me.

You know Goforth?

If you're a friend of Goforth's, you can

pay your passage by getting her to see us.

They say she's a bitch to approach.

How well do you know her?

Well, it's been some time since

I've seen her, but... well, actually, I...

a- actually, I know her quite well...

Off!

Bloody bitch of the world!

Mrs. Goforth!

Another one of their

goddamned village delegations...

Rudi!

Buon giorno.

Basta, basta!

Does one of you speak English?

Yes, I speak enough.

Signora, we have come here because

of the widow of the man you killed here.

The widow of this young man,

does have no money to live.

The widow of that ladro - robber - will

be given money to leave this island.

- Quando? - Uh, Quando?

- Quando.

When she gets on the boat with

her fantastic lies - then, then is when!

Then!

Mrs. Goforth!

- Where was I?

- "The prince said to me...

Oh, yes.

The, uh, prince said to me,

"Madame Goforth, your exact origins

are a mystery to all of us. "

And I said to the prince,

"Without champagne, my origins

are a mystery even to me,

"but I think it's safe to assume that

I originated in the womb of my mother,

"with some assistance from

a father unknown,

"on a day unknown,

of a year unknown. "

Mrs. Goforth!

My name has been in lights

since scarcely more than a child.

Then marriage to five

industrial kings,

all who had vast fortunes,

which, according to the looks of

them they deposited in their bellies.

A pyramid of tycoons.

But then, after them,

is once love.

My sixth and last marriage was

to a young poet,

light as a bird,

who had a passion for altitudes

far above sea level.

Mrs. Goforth!

No interruption!

In these pictures, which I'd like reproduced

at this point in my memoirs,

he's shown preparing to

climb a mountain,

down which he fell to his death.

Five thousand feet down to his

death in a field of snow.

My heart fell with him,

and was shattered, as he was.

How in hell can I work with those goddamned

dogs of Rudi's barking up a storm?

Go tell Rudi to either shoot them

or shut them up!

Rudi!

Call your dogs off him before

they tear him to pieces!

hurry up, play golf. Play golf.

Did they hurt you much?

Well, I'm alive.

Mrs. Goforth!

What does the sign on

the beach say?

'Private property, keep out. '

Just 'keep out'?

Not 'beware of dogs'?

Says nothing about dogs.

Go down there right away and

put up a 'beware of the dog' sign,

in three languages.

And Arabic.

If that man's gonna sue me

I'll have to prove that there was a

'beware of dog' sign.

Move, move, quick!

Mrs. bloody Goforth!

He's out there shouting my

name as if he knew me.

Would you do something for me?

Would you tell Mrs. Goforth that

Mr. Christopher Flanders is here to see her?

Oh, yes, and, uh...

and give her this book,

and tell her that I wish

to see her.

And don't mention the dogs.

Just say that I...

climbed the mountain,

and I'm tired.

Very tired.

Man bring this up road.

Man dogs bite?

Yes, this brings up mountain.

Man resemble this photo?

Yes, this man.

Go out and tell...

Vada fuoir e dica...

Blackie!

Tell him to go out and say that

I'm terribly upset

about the accident with the dogs,

but I want to know why he came here.

And that I am not responsible for anyone

that comes here without an invitation.

No, I will not.

Ha, you will.

I can't give a man nearly killed

Tennessee Williams

Thomas Lanier "Tennessee" Williams III (March 26, 1911 – February 25, 1983) was an American playwright. Along with Eugene O'Neill and Arthur Miller, he is considered among the three foremost playwrights of 20th-century American drama.After years of obscurity, at age 33 he became suddenly famous with the success of The Glass Menagerie (1944) in New York City. This play closely reflected his own unhappy family background. It was the first of a string of successes, including A Streetcar Named Desire (1947), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955), and Sweet Bird of Youth (1959). With his later work, he attempted a new style that did not appeal to audiences. Increasing alcohol and drug dependence inhibited his creative expression. His drama A Streetcar Named Desire is often numbered on short lists of the finest American plays of the 20th century alongside Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night and Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman.Much of Williams' most acclaimed work has been adapted for the cinema. He also wrote short stories, poetry, essays and a volume of memoirs. In 1979, four years before his death, Williams was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame. more…
