Plot: Based on Tennessee Williams' ORPHEUS DECENDING, THE FUGITIVE KIND stars Marlon Brando as Val Xavier, a guitar playing, snakeskin jacket wearing drifter who wanders into a small southern town after giving up a life of crime. There, he meets Carol Cutere (Woodward in an incendiary performance), the local bad girl, with whom he begins a stormy love affair. However, Val also gets involved with his boss' wife, the Lady (Magnani), who will do anything she can to stop Val from running off with Carol and keep him in her town. Flamboyant, melodramatic, and, by turns, absurd and profoundly affecting, THE FUGITIVE KIND is a fascinating movie that provided the inspiration for David Lynch's WILD AT HEART.
