This is another of my favorites. I know I say that alot but I do love this era of films, costumes, etc. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof does not disappoint in either. I am also a HUGE fan of Tennessee Williams. His work was almost an obsession of mine during college when I studied Theatre. I was in A Streetcar Named Desire
, more on that when I do a review. I designed costumes for A Streetcar Named Desire
, as well. I did many scene studies of his work and set design of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Academy Awards, it received several nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor (Newman), Best Actress (Taylor), and Best Director (Brooks). The film also received nominations for Best Cinematography, Color (William Daniels), and Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium" from Wikipedia. This makes me wonder WHAT won that year....so of course I looked it up on Wikipedia. Well "Gigi" won best picture and a host of other awards, breaking "Gone With the Wind's" record, but only for one year because a year late Ben Hur winds even more. Best Actress that year went to Susan Hayward in "I Want to Live", which is a movie I LOVE and have since I was a little girl (why my mom let me watch it at a young age, I do not know...). Anyway....it did not WIN any awards but that does not mean it is not a good movie....

|There is usually a scene where the female lead wears a slip in Williams plays and Elizabeth Taylor does it very well...|
