Product description

Very Collectable and Very Rare

Tennessee Williams’ “PERIOD OF ADJUSTMENT” 6 10”X8” B&W Lobby Cards

Starring Tony Franciosa, Jane Fonda, Jim Hutton with Lois Nettleton, John McGiver.

George Roy Hill's first directorial effort sets the only comedic play of Tennessee Williams. It is Christmas Eve in High Point, Tennessee. Dottie Baitz walks out on her husband, Ralph, after dealing with five years of realization he only proposed to her because her sickly dad suggested her new husband could quickly inherit his vast personal wealth and coveted corporate holdings. George Haverstraw is Ralph's former Korean War buddy, whom he hasn't seen in years. George developed shock, and, with it, performance anxiety, during the war. He shows up on Ralph's lonely doorstep to deposit his new bride, whom he calls Little Bit, a love and companionship starved nurse who apparently just eloped with him on a dare. When George returns to drink with his war buddy, Ralph figures out that George could learn to properly pay attention to his new wife and George figures out that Ralph could properly tell off his overbearing, bullying.in-laws, who soon show up to grab all his possessions and hopefully leave him homeless and peniless now that their daughter has come to her senses and abandoned him. The ruckus ends up with all six Principals in night court, told by the sergeant of police this is not a matter the law can straighten out for them. They return to Ralph and Dottie's house. In the bedroom, Ralph tells Dottie he always had feelings for her. On the pull out sofa in the living room, Little Bit tells George that married couples have endless time to polish their love making routines, placing no pressure on each other.
