    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Miss St. Clair: I've always depended on the kindness of strangers.


        The mentally fragile and delusional Dorothy St. Clair evokes the spirit of playwright Tennessee Williams' most famous character Blanche DuBois. The delicate and doomed tragic heroine is featured in the influential and celebrated A Streetcar Named Desire (1947). The play was adapted into a 1951 movie starring Vivien Leigh as Balnche, a role that won her an Academy Award.

      • Dietrich: It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.


        Relating his life story to Inspector Luger, Dietrich opens with one of the most famousquotes in English literature;the classic first line from Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities (1859).
