The Night of the Iguana 12/20/22

The Warner Archive Collection

John Huston has great fun with Tennessee Williams’ tale of a failed minister who tangles with romantic terrors in a pre-developed Puerto Vallarta. He gives his stellar cast full freedom to seize the screen: Richard Burton, Ava Gardner, Deborah Kerr, Grayson Hall and Sue Lyon. The fun ranges from ribald comedy to poetic glimpses of what lies beyond human desperation. Charlie Largent reviews; the hapless Burton doesn’t know what these women will do after the sun sets. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
