I’m not living with you,” Maggie snaps at Brick. “We occupy the same cage, that’s all.” The raw emotions and crackling dialogue of Tennessee Williams’ 1955 Pulitzer Prize play 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.
Paul Newman earned his first Oscar® nomination as troubled
ex-sports-hero Brick. In a performance that marked a transition
to richer adult roles, Elizabeth Taylor snagged her second
nomination. Her Maggie the Cat is a vivid portrait of passionate
loyalty. Nominated for six Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, and also starring Burl Ives (repeating his Broadway triumph as mendacity-loathing Big Daddy), Judith Anderson and Jack Carson, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof sizzles.
