Critic Reviews for The Glass Menagerie
The Glass Menagerie has a lot going for it, even if director Irving Rapper (Now, Voyager) misses several opportunities to take the characters deeper.
The first film to be made out of Tennessee Williams play is one oe the weakest; it's still theater and Gertrude Lawrence is miscast in the lead.
