Offbeat dramatization of the Tennessee Williams play about a defrocked priest, a pretty hotelier, a single artist, a mischievous girl , and a closeted governess all congregated at a dilapidated Mexican resort. The tone shifts from drama to comedy to tragedy in a heartbeat. Richard Burton and Ava Gardner are pretty good. Sue Lyon plays a rehash of her Lolita role well. Grayson Hall is appropriately stuck-up and oblivious as the judgemental leader of a tour group unaware of her own lesbianism. Huston keeps Richard Burton's character interesting enough without becoming too pathetic.

3.5/4

A gripping drama with Richard Burton as an alcoholic and allegedly defrocked Minister who is now acting as a tour guide in Mexico. Richard Burton, Ava Gardner and Deborah Kerr light up the screen in this well scripted adaptation of Tennessee Williams' play.

This is an incredible film by John Huston about a preacher that has been beaten down by the world. Incredible performances all around. I usually don't like Ava Gardner, but she was unrecognizably brilliant in this. Sue Lyon had too few good roles in her career, but she was smoldering as the teenage temptress.
