Academy Award winners Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman star in the classic screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. As the family of a wealthy Southern patriarch (Burl Ives--The Big Country) informs his children that he is dying of cancer, lies and secrets surface that threaten to rip the family apart. The doctors say the growing cancer is in remission. One self-seeking son claims to love his father. And favorite son, Brick (Newman--Road to Perdition), drinks, won't have sex with the beautiful wife (Taylor--Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) who adores him...and refuses to honestly confront the reason why.
