Adapted from the beloved Tennesse Williams stage play, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof stars Taylor as the titular feline who uses her feminine wiles to drive her drunk boyfriend stir-crazy. When the Pollitt family reunites at Big Momma's (Judith Anderson) house for a farewell sendoff to their terminally ill Big Daddy (Burl Ives), the dysfunction reaches a fever-pitch. Paul Newman plays Brick, a former football star who wastes his time drinking to avoid his philandering wife Maggie (Taylor). The film scored six Oscar nods, including Best Picture and Leading Actor nominations for Taylor and Newman.
