Vintage Photos of Sue Lyon on the set of “The night of the Iguana” (1964)

The Night of the Iguana is a 1964 film based on the 1961 play of the same name written by Tennessee Williams.

The film grossed $12 million worldwide at the box office, earning $4.5 million in US theatrical rentals. It was the 10th highest-grossing film of 1964. Time magazine’s reviewer wrote:

“Huston and company put together a picture that excites the senses, persuades the mind, and even occasionally speaks to the spirit—one of the best movies ever made from a Tennessee Williams play.”
