Streetcar Named Desire montage
Every now and then, I will tackle a project like this Ithat I know will take ages to finish. There’s something about montages like this that I really like; so much to see and notice that it takes many viewings to catch everything. It’s also a challenge to fit many different pieces together to make one whole image. This painting is from the Vivien Leigh & Marlon Brando film “Streetcar Named Desire,” based on the play by Tennessee Williams. Leigh gives a touching performance; her insanity is heartbreaking. Sadly, unlike Scarlett O’Hara, southern belle Blanche is not a survivor. I am pleased with the way the Leigh images turned out; some of the Brando faces are a little whacked, but overall, I still like the finished product.
