Glass MenagerieDownloadable Video - 1973
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. The Glass Menagerie portrays a mother whose preoccupation with the past as a Southern belle and 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. Both Michael Moriarty and Joanna Miles won 1973 - 74 Emmy Awards for Best Supporting Actor. Anthony Harvey was nominated by the Directors Guild of America for Best Director in 1973.
