He Used Love Like Most Men Use Money

Handsome Chance Wayne never found the Hollywood stardom he craved, but he’s always been a star with the ladies. Now, back in his sleepy, sweaty Gulf Coast hometown, he’s involved with two of them: a washed-up, drug-and-vodka-addled movie queen. And the girl he left behind…and in trouble.

Paul Newman, best Actress Oscar® nominee Geraldine Page, Rip Torn and Madeleine Sherwood recreate their stage roles and Ed Begley gives an Oscar®-winning portrayal as the town’s corrupt political boss in a bravura film version of Tennessee Williams’ Broadway hit. Sex. Money. Hypocrisy. Financial and emotional black-mail. Familiar elements of Williams’ literary realm combine powerfully as Chance battles his private demons in a desperate bid to redeem his wasted life and recapture his lost sweet bird of youth.
