Burt Lancaster may get top billing but the real star of this film is the incomparable Anna Magnani. What a performance!

Tennessee Williams wrote this play for Magnani, so it's no surprise that she shines in this role. Rather than trademark decadence, this South focuses on the Sicilian immigrant experience. The script reads authentically and Magnani's performance lends further credibility to Sicilian views of family, gender roles and honor. Lancaster hasn't been in a goofier or over-acted role, yet his rendering is appropriately clownesque. For once, Williams brings happiness out of the darkness.

Good drama, almost easy going coming from Williams. Magnani gives it her all.

Anna Magnani is fabulous in whatever she appears in. With Lancaster it is touch and go. Call this one a middling effort. the film is likely held back by society norms as to what should and should not appear in a film. Overdue perhaps for a reboot.

Anna Magnani gives one of the most truthful and poignant performances ever seen on screen. She definitely is the driving force of the film.

Anna Magnani's powerful and amazing Oscar winning performance makes this film. It's not a particularly cheery film, but the story is always interesting and the production is fine. Good support from Marisa Pavan. Realistic and believably told. Good acting by Burt Lancaster as well.

I love this movie! The level of denial regarding the primary character's (awesome performance by Anna Magnani) deceased husband's infidelity is true to life and reminiscent of someone I know. Burt Lancaster's character is a bit dingy, but believable. All around a very good movie.

I can't imagine any other actress - any Hollywood actress - in this role. The italian giant of acting, Anna Magnani, carries the movie with such power. The way she claps her hands when she's nervous, her laughs, her big gestures and hot blooded personality. The movie goes great, until Burt Lancaster places on the screen with that ugly, overacted and annoying as hell performance. God, he was miscast in this movie. If I were the director, I would have shot him, for almost have killed the movie. This only didn't happen because of Magnani.

*** (out of four)

Not one of the great Tennessee Williams film versions, but thanks to a very good performance from Anna Mangnani, it is lifted.

In her Oscar-winning role Magnani is a Italian-American widow who has withdrawn from life. Then a trucker (Burt Lancaster) comes into her life.

The film is all Magnani. Lancaster, unforntunately, nearly ruins the picture with his over-the-top, annoying performance.

Well, this was interesting. 1955. The year I was born. A rough and fun black and white film with Anna Magnani and Burt Lancaster. I watched it (like Jean Brodie) for the Best Actress performance. And that is the best thing about it. It's very stiff and other than Anna Magnani, the acting is even stiffer. I like Burt Lancaster, and they probably needed him because of his buff body and to bring people to the theatre, but he is pretty awful. But Anna Magnani is terrific fun to watch. She is unpredictable and big in all her actions. Fun to watch a 'natural' woman. you could see this woman telling the director to take a hike if she disagreed with what she was told to do. Too bad she didn't come to the 1956 Academy Awards - her speech would have been more dignified that Roberto Begnini's, and a lot more fun. Oh, and she clearly knew English.
