Not surprisingly, this short documentary was included on the DVD for "A Streetcar Named Desire". Much of the footage consists of the director, Elia Kazan, discussing the play but also includes folks like Karl Malden, Kim Hunter and Richard Schickel. It's all about the Broadway production of the play--not the movie that followed it several years later. None of the anecdotes were that exciting or important--so it's not a film I advise you to rush to see. On the other hand, if you get the DVD it's well worth seeing--and a nice chance to see Malden, Hunter and Kazan (who have since passed away). Interesting.
By the way, a few of the clips of Kazan were ALSO used in the biography "Elia Kazan: A Director's Journey"--which is also included on the same DVD.
