The Glass Menagerie

After what producer David Susskind called, "the longest wooing for a part in a lifetime of dealing with stars," four-time Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn made her television dramatic debut as the indomitable, overbearing matriarch, Amanda Wingfield, in Tennessee Williams' poignant 1945 memory play, which reteamed her with director Anthony Harvey ("The Lion in Winter"). "The Glass Menagerie" portrays a mother whose pre-occupation with her past as a Southern belle, and her unrealistic dreams for her children's futures, threaten to smother her painfully shy, lame daughter (Joanna Miles) and her aspiring writer son (Sam Waterston). Michael Moriarty plays the gentleman caller whose visit offers false hope and disrupts the family's precarious balance.
