  • The Rose Tattoo was the 1955 film version of a Tennessee Williams play. Williams wrote the play with Italian actress Anna Magnani in mind for the leading role. Originally, Magnani turned down the part due to her weak English skills, but by the time the movie was cast her English had improved and she accepted the role. Magnani won the only Oscar for Best Actress ever awarded for a Florida-made film.
