A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
   “For the first three weeks, I was as miserable as I’ve ever been. I didn’t like Vivien Leigh, though I came to love her by the end. She kept saying, ‘Well, Larry and I in England…’ and I’d say, ‘You’re not doing it with Larry now, you’re doing it with me, and I don’t like it that way.’ And she said, ‘Don’t you think it’s possible — Larry had this idea.’ And I said, ‘I guess it’s possible, but we’re not going to do it that way.’ She’d get irritated with me, and I’d get plenty angry with her.    But gradually we got to like each other, mainly because I thought she was such a terrific worker. We began to sweat together. By about the fourth week I’d got over my resistance to her and to the whole enterprise.” (Elia Kazan)
