"A Streetcar Named Desire" Crescent City Connection: Blah, blah, blah plot. Stanley Kowalski (a very hot Marlon Brando) screams the memorable line, "Hey, Stella!" with his shirt half ripped off. Oh, you need more? Okay, faded and unstable Southern belle Blanche (Vivien Leigh) escapes a rather sordid past by visiting her sister, the aforementioned Stella (Kim Hunter) in the Faubourg Marigny of New Orleans. To put it mildly, she doesn't get along with her brother-in-law Stanley.
