Originally produced as a motion picture in 1958
Summary: A story of deception which is destroying a patriarchal Southern family as its' members gather for the imminent demise of their "Big Daddy."
Summary: Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman and Burl Ives turn in searing performances as members of a neurotic Southern family in this superb adaptation of Tennessee Williams' perceptive, prize-winning play. The clan has gathered to face the impending death of Big Daddy (Burl Ives), the domineering plantation king, who roars and snorts with gusto, while his greedy relatives claw, connive and lie in their battle over the inheritance of his vast estate. Academy Award-nominee Paul Newman is Brick, the favored son, a tortured, boozing ex-football star who cannot face up to adult responsibility. Prowling and snarling, Elizabeth Taylor commands the screen as Maggie the Cat, Brick's sensual wife, whose hot tin roof is the bed she no longer shares with her husband. A work of rare intensity, this ferocious and fascinating film is unparalleled in its vision of relationships built on lies. (MGM) 1958
