Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
BBC2 2.30pm - 4.15pm ★★★★
Burl Ives lords it over his Southern mansion in fine style, but he doesn’t know he’s dying of cancer. Paul Newman is his traumatised son, while Elizabeth Taylor is Newman’s sexually frustrated wife. A toned-down, but still smouldering and powerful adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ play.
Dir: Richard Brooks 1958, 12, 105min
