Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958)


A family convenes at the birthday party of the patriarch and have many discussions.


Everyone's just yelling at each other all the time, so much hostility. But it's interesting to see Brick's turnaround near the end: he actually gets dressed instead of just in pajamas and he refuses a drink when offered. Can you get more beautiful people than Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor? The movie was originally considered to be filmed in black and white but the director said, when you get the chance to film Newman's bright blue eyes and Taylor's velvet eyes, you use color.



Paul Newman ... Brick Pollitt
Elizabeth Taylor ... Maggie Pollitt
Burl Ives ... Big Daddy Pollitt
