Film Friday

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof -1958

This stars two of my favorites,Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman as Maggie and Brick. Brick is an alcoholic ex-football hero who spends his days drinking and avoiding his wife, Maggie. Most of the story takes place at a gorgeous estate in Mississippi where they go to spend time with Brick's father,Big Daddy, who is dying of cancer. I think this is Paul at his best, other than Cool Hand Luke, and Elizabeth is in her prime. One of the hottest on screen couples, the acting in this movie is how I imagine their personalities in real life. Elizabeth's wardrobe is fabulous and the set is amazing, perfect design inspiration!

aren't they striking?!
