Essay 3 (750 words): Write a comparison/contrast using Shakespeare’s play and
one of the film versions: note at least three changes and defend why you think the changes were effective or ineffective.
• Also, discuss the film version of Tennessee
Williams’ play concentrating on changes due to censorship considerations, the
Hollywood studio star system, and so forth. Both play to film stories are included on another document.
a) Write a comparison/contrast using Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, and the film version: note
at least three changes and defend why you think the changes were effective or ineffective. Do you think
having unknown young actors, Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey, as opposed to recognizable stars,
made the film more or less appealing? Please explain….
b) Discuss the film version of Tennessee Williams’ play, A Streetcar Named Desire, concentrating on three changes specifically due to (1) censorship considerations, (2) the Hollywood studio star system, and so forth. (The original Blanche on the New York stage was an actress named Jessica Tandy, at the time not a Hollywood draw.) Consider the casting of the two leads, Vivian Leigh and Marlon Brando, and the differences in emphasis—if any—between the main character as written in the play and who ends up the main character in the film. c) Now, also, compare the two films: compared to its play source, which do you think was opened up better visually? This does not refer to the first scene, but to which you feel looks better as a movie, i. e. cinematically, as opposed to looking “stage-bound.”
Note: You will be writing about two different plays-to-films in one essay. Each half should be connected in the middle with some sort of transition like “on the other hand,” “in contrast,” etc. Please see the separate Doc on transitions, which are useful in all essay and paragraph writing.
Please note you are looking for different things in each story: changes, censorship, casting, and so forth.
Please don’t plagiarise.
