The Rose Tattoo

Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1955. Vintage reference photograph of playwright and screenwriter Tennessee Williams with director Daniel Mann and Anna Magnani on the set of the 1955 film.

Based on the 1950 play by Tennessee Williams. Williams wrote the play for Anna Magnani to play on Broadway, which she rejected because she felt she was not yet fluent enough in English.

Winner of three Academy Awards including Best Actress for Anna Magnani and Best Cinematography, nominated for five more, including Best Picture.
