Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Burl Ives
Future Academy Award winners Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman star in this screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The raw emotions and crackling dialogue rumble like a thunderstorm in this film version whose fiery performances and grown-up themes made it one of 1958's top box-office hits, while receiving six Oscar nominations (including "Best Picture"). As the family of a wealthy Southern patriarch (Burl Ives) learns that he is dying of cancer, lies and secrets surface that threaten to rip the family apart. One self-seeking son (Jack Carson) claims to love his father, while favorite son and troubled ex-sports hero Brick (Newman), drinks, won't have sex with the beautiful wife (Taylor) who adores him, and refuses to honestly confront the reason why. "I'm not living with you," Maggie snaps at Brick. "We occupy the same cage, that's all." Newman earned his first Oscar nomination, while Taylor snagged her second. Her Maggie the Cat is a vivid portrait of passionate loyalty, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a film that sizzles.
