The Little Indie On My Must See List

Tennessee Williams' The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond stars Ellen Burstyn, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Ann-Margret. Bryce Dallas Howard portrays Fisher Willow, who returns from abroad to 1920s Memphis. Doug Johnson of Alt Film Guide writes:

In Fisher, traces are abundant of female characters ranging from Maggie the Cat to Baby Doll to Alexandra Del Lago, charged characters that brought Academy Award nominations to Elizabeth Taylor, Carroll Baker, and Geraldine Page, the actresses who originated them on screen.
