Suddenly, Last Summer (1959) Screenplay by Gore Vidal and Tennessee Williams from the play by Tennessee Williams. Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Montgomery Clift as Dr. Cukrowicz and Katharine Hepburn as Mrs. Violet Venable.

Dr. Cukrowicz: I’ve never seen an insectivorous plant before. What is it called?
Violet Venable: The Venus Flytrap. A devouring organism… aptly named for the goddess of love.

  1. Ha! Good one! And a Tennessee classic with some great performances!

  2. I’ve always been highly entertained by Vidal and supported his senatorial candidacy back in the 80s I think it was. The world is less fun without him but more fun because he was here.
