Deliberate mistake: Before Blanche's birthday dinner, she comes out of the bathroom with her wet hair up in a towel and asks Stella for another towel saying she's just washed it. Moments later she emerges from the bathroom with completely dry and styled hair that would have taken hours to do during that time period.
Trivia: In 1951, the time of the movie being shot, New Orleans no longer had streetcars, but the tracks were still there. The movie studio obtained special permission to use the streetcar named desire for Blanch's opening scene.
