Night of the IguanaThis movie, based on the play by Tennessee Williams, features outstanding performances by Richard Burton and Ava Gardner is finally, (joy!) available on DVD.

I can not recommend this moving and wonderful film enough. Burton plays a defrocked priest stuck giving tours in Puerto Vallarta where a little seductress (Sue Lyon from Lolita) tries to get him into trouble again. Gardner plays a window that frolics with cabana boys and runs a hotel where Burton and a strange traveler (Deborah Kerr) find solace. One of the few movies where a poem resonates with such beauty. A perfect movie, one of my very favorites.
