From the towering genius of Tennessee Williams comes a story of passions lost and found. Academy Award-winner Geraldine Page stars as the spinster, Alma. Laurence Harvey is Doctor John Buchanan, the handsome young man Alma has loved since childhood; but when a sultry vamp appears (Rita Moreno), the doctor falls hard, descending into a seamy nightlife and leaving Alma's dreams behind like forgotten embers. Set against a steamy southern backdrop and the sweeping grandeur of Elmer Bernstein's Academy Award-nominated score, Summer and Smoke crackles with first-rate performances and the stirring power of Tennessee Williams' words.
