There is no denying that Taylor and Paul Newman are ideally cast and in their prime, while Burl Ives gives the oerformance of a lifetime as Big Daddy, who is dying from cancer. Judith Anderson pulls out all the stops as Big Momma, his wife, and Jack Carson and Madeleine Sherwood are terrific as Rick's envious sibling and his rapacious wife. But it does skirt delicately round, when not ignoring completely, the reason why Rick won't sleep with Maggie, the cat on that tin roof. In some ways it improves the play, which has a long opening scene with Maggie ranting, much cut here, but it remains classic Hollywood fudge - something that pretends to be what it is not. However Williams is well enough served, Taylor, a limited actress but good in the right part, and this was the right part, was at her loveliest, while Newman is simply sex on legs - eat your hearts out Brad Pitt and that man who currently plays 007.

Throbs with hot sexual undertones,that are not in your face or overt. The acting can not be rated enough, if you haven't watched this film, go rent it and watch it now. Taylor and Newman at their best!

In the film "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" the part of Big Daddy is played by Burl Ives and not Orson Welles. The film is somewhat notorious, not only for its allusions to homosexuality, but because Tennessee Williams was "persuaded" to change the ending of the play. Hollywood could just not accept the idea that anyone would turn down sleeping with Elizabeth Taylor (Maggie).

Paul Newman is great here and together with Elizabeth Taylor he has some great scenes. Burt Ives as Big Daddy has a nice performance as well and Madeleine Sherwood does a very good job by creating one of the most annoying characters I have seen in the movies. Her whining Mae is hated by everyone and we totally understand why. With a movie where there is this much talking and the story line is mostly talking about things rather than experience them the actors are very important and do a very good job.

I won't go into the differences to this and the original play that Tennessee Williams wrote as most people are surely aware of these, and the reason why, due to censorship laws. This is still a great movie and even if it was remade these days with the original story, chances are that it wouldn't be as good as this, as the actors are all top notch here.

With Burl Ives playing Big Daddy here as he did on Broadway his performance is finely polished. Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor are both on sizzling form which is why they were both Oscar nominated for their roles. The whole film is brilliantly made and unlike today's blockbusters, as this is based on a play it is more dialogue intense than relying on special effects. Despite the story changes this is still gripping stuff and a family at loggerheads is still as rivetting today as ever.

If you like something with substance rather than lots of explosions, then this is something that you will want to see.

For some reason, despite being an English teacher who enjoys stage plays, I have managed to miss reading or seeing this play by Tennessee Williams. Well - thanks to Amazon streaming videos the other evening, along with my wife, we watched this for, I think £3.95. What a bargain. The streaming quality was high and we experienced a smooth HD quality film and sound. I missed from this streamed version the inclusion of subtitles and would have wished for these; they are always useful as in many films the clarity of sound is not always 100% (this was as good as any other). Despite that we enjoyed the film for its acting, which was faultless, its cinematography which was very well created, often creating the sense of a stage rather than a film set.

The play itself was extraordinary and surely ongside Williams's 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and 'The Glass Menagerie' as among the best ever written.

Paul Newman at his laconic best, watching his somewhat dysfunctional family competing for the attentions of the dying patriarch, wonderfully played by Burl Ives. The film positivly throbs with emotion; frustration, desire,jealousy pain - you name it, this film has it in spades. An absolute classic.
