Suddenly, Last Summer

Joseph L. Mankiewicz flirts with camp in his 1959 adaptation of Tennessee Williams's sweaty gothic study, with Katharine Hepburn as a production-line southern dowager brooding over the blossoming relationship between her brain-damaged daughter (Elizabeth Taylor) and her doctor (Montgomery Clift). The cast packs enough sexual ambiguity to satisfy the most rabid Williams fan (not to mention a screenplay by Gore Vidal), but Mankiewicz leaves much of the innuendo unexplored—thankfully, perhaps. With Gary Raymond and Albert Dekker.
