Street Car Named Desire: Stanley's Brutality

Uploaded by Admin on Nov 21, 1999

In the Street Car Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams, Stanley Kowalski displays his brutality in many ways.

When he threw the radio out the window, he then immediately charged right at his wife, Stella. He was in such rage and he was so drunk that when he reached her he hit her in the face. Luckily, before he can get another blow off his friends grabbed him and pinned him to the floor.
