The Night of the Iguana is the 1964 film adaptation of the play of the same name written by Tennessee Williams. The story follows Reverend Dr. T Lawrence Shannon (Richard Burton) as he escapes his sex scandaled priestly past by working as a tour guide for a Texas company called Blake Tours. When he is assigned to take a group of Baptist school teachers to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Shannon finds the past repeating itself when he is accused of seducing Charlotte Goodall (Sue Lyon), the niece of the Baptist group's leader Miss Judith Fellowes (Grayson Hall). In hopes of setting the record straight, Shannon strands the bus at a hotel in Mismaloya on the coast of Mexico. Shannon becomes entangled in the hotel owner's (Ava Gardner) tumultuous love life and is further confused. Also starring Deborah Kerr and Cyril Delevanti, The Night of the Iguana was nominated for numerous Academy Awards, including Best Costume Design and Best Supporting Actress.
