Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

-

(1958) The eyes were the thing when Taylor and Paul Newman teamed up in this screen adaptation of the Tennessee Williams classic about the ultimate dysfunctio­nal Southern family. Taylor is resplenden­t (and memorable in her slinky slip) as the tempestuou­s Maggie, the frustrated wife of drunken former football star Brick (Newman). She moves from angry to seductive to mocking, then anguished with startling ease. (Her third husband, Mike Todd, died while she was making the movie.)
