Richard Burton, Ava Gardner and Deborah Kerr star in Academy Award-winning director John Huston's adaptation of playwright Tennessee Williams' The Night of the Iguana. Defrocked, alcoholic former priest T. Lawrence Shannon (Burton) has fallen far in his quest to sate his base, libidinous urges. Now working as a tour guide in Mexico for a group of female American schoolteachers, Shannon is caught with one of the women at the start of a night of alcohol and tropical heat that rips away the façades of repression that cover the perversions and personal demons of all members of the tour group.
