Her lie is the first of a series about Blanche’s past that will come to light in the next several scenes. SAM STAGGS is the author of four books, including three previous biographies of movies: All About All About Eve, Close-Up On Sunset Boulevard, and When Blanche Met lives in Dallas, Texas.

      The tabloid-tinted title “When Blanche Met Brando: The Scandalous Story of ‘A Streetcar Named Desire'” promises something salacious but delivers something better. Dallas author Sam Staggs. Brando: songs my mother taught me by Marlon Brando When Blanche met Brando: This book is compiled from her voluminous class notes as well as audio & videotape of her teaching & is destined to become a classic in the fields of acting & theatre.

      References to this book When Blanche Met Brando: The Scandalous Story of "A Streetcar Named Desire" Sam Staggs, Agent [email protected] Net Sam Staggs No preview available - Reviews: 1.   Brando tends to upstage and upend the whole picture in his way, and Karl Malden, although excellent as Blanche’s diffident suitor Mitch – a man whose feelings are trifled with by her – is.
