"Beauty is the main part of a woman’s equipment, and when beauty begins to go it can have a shattering effect. In ‘Streetcar,’ Blanche, who knows what is happening to her looks, is pulled sharply under the naked light of an unscreened lamp. She is made to look at herself in the mirror by the man she is hoping to marry. The memory of that scene stayed with me all my life: I believe it was the cause of my nervous breakdown." (Vivien Leigh)
