CHARLES FELDMANS WORKING COPY OF "THE GLASS MENAGERIE." Kirk Douglas, Jane Wyman, and Gertrude Lawrence star in this film version of Tennessee Williams' breakout Broadway hit—also the first feature film adaptation of a Williams play. Williams reportedly deeply disliked this film because of the many changes made to his work, including the addition of an implied upbeat ending. The finished film runs 1 hour, 47 minutes, but the script amounts to 2 hours and 21 minutes of screen-time.
