This steamy Southern drama stars Academy Award-winner Karl Malden ("On the Waterfront," "A Streetcar Named Desire") as the owner of a cotton gin, married to a sultry teenaged bride, nicknamed "Baby Doll," who steadfastly refuses to sleep with her husband until she reaches the age of 20. When a crafty rival cotton gin owner moves to town, he covets Malden's business, and his wife. In a fit of jealousy, Malden sets fire to his competition's business, which causes his competitor to claim Baby Doll as "compensation." Also starring Academy Award-winner Carroll Baker ("Giant," "How the West Was Won"), Emmy Award-winner Rip Torn (the "Men in Black" movies, "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story") and Emmy Award-winner EliWallach ("The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," "The Magnificent Seven"). Written by Tennessee Williams, and directed by Elia Kazan, this feature was nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
