The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond

I just discovered and was immediately drawn into this film, based on the play, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, by Tennessee Williams. I haven't seen it yet but it sounds and looks like a good one. Set in Memphis during the Roaring Twenties, the film follows the story of Fisher Willow, a young and headstrong heiress who rebels against proper Southern society by asking the poor but handsome son, Jimmy Dobyne, of her father's caretaker to be her escort to the season's social events. What happens to such a business deal when she falls in love with him? I don't know! But I want to find out...Doesn't the film just look pretty? :P
