366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 166

The Date: March 14

The Movie: Baby Doll (1956)

What Is It?: All the weirdness of a midnight movie fifteen years ahead of schedule. All the wildness, eroticism, and wit of a Tennessee Williams script. All the high-energy brilliance of a power-trio cast featuring Carroll Baker as a raging young-bride, Karl Malden as her gross husband hot to take advantage of her twentieth birthday, and Eli Wallach as an unlikely sexy suitor and cotton gin tycoon.

Why Today?: On this day in 1794, Eli Whitney patents the cotton gin.
