The action occurred on the occasion of the 65th birthday of 'Big Daddy' Pollitt (Burl Ives reprising his stage role) - the patriarchal plantation head (who was secretly suffering from terminal cancer), when the greater Pollitt family gathered and inevitably quarrelled - greedily - over the granting of the expected inheritance. Brick commanded her to join him in the bedroom, and she thanked him: "Thank you for keepin' still, for backin' me up in my lie." Brick told her that they would make the lie come true: Platinum blonde sex starlet Mamie Van Doren was one of the leading sex symbols of the day, known as one of the three M's (the others were Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield).
Elizabeth Taylor co-starred as the passionate, provocative, sexually-frustrated and deprived feline Maggie ("The Cat" in the film's title). She had earlier starred as Penny Lowe in a late 50s teen movie hit titled Untamed Youth (1957) -- a women's prison farm musical.
As the film ended, Boyeur told Mavis that he could not leave his country with her: In addition, the film's high point was a momentous family scandal, when it was thought that the expatriate Fleury family, white plantation owners, had been tainted by mixed "tarbrush" blood - the grandmother allegedly had some Negro blood.
Grace Metalious' torrid, potboiling soap opera in her sensational novel was adapted and sanitized for the screen's film release. Love and sex-starved from Brick, she admired her father-in-law's lechery, believing that he found her sexually attractive: "I think it's mighty fine the way that ole fellow on the doorstep of death still takes in my shape with what I consider deserved appreciation."It was later revealed that Brick was mostly suffering from the suicidal death of his friend Skipper whom he loved - while Maggie had opposed Skipper ("I hated Skipper, because you loved him so much! [In the play, Maggie had allegedly seduced Skipper, an instance of heterosexual infidelity - to keep their relationship at bay - an important plot element missing in the film.
Her sizzling advances and lustful cat-like sensuality (often while wearing a white slip) were thwarted in her difficult marriage. It told about teenaged drug pushers (with 50s period slang, hep-talk ("Don't flip your lid," and "If you flake around with the weed, you'll end up using the harder stuff"), switchblade fights, drag racing, and beatnik poetry). were re-shot for more liberal European standards (pictured), such as the shot of a young girl in overdosing agony (and partially unclad) in an adjoining room.'Bad girl' Mamie Van Doren portrayed nymphomaniacal older Aunt Gwen Dulaine sporting a tight-sweatered, pointed 'bullet bra' covering her protuberant breasts.
She was frustrated by the unloving temperament of her alcoholic, injured (with a broken ankle), impotent, sexually-conflicted and apathetic husband Brick Pollitt (Paul Newman). I think you've even gotten better-lookin' since you went on the bottle. If I thought you'd never never make love to me again (pause)..I'd find me the longest, sharpest knife I could and I'd stick it straight into my heart. Portraying a perpetually horny nymphomaniac, she vamped younger, authority-defying troublesome, switchblade-carrying new transfer student Tony Baker (Russ Tamblyn), telling him: He was actually agent Mike Wilson, infiltrating a high school (where all students looked over 20) in the hopes of exposing a dope-pushing drug ring called the Wheeler-Dealers.
His twisted love for her was a combination of sibling affection, repressed incestual domination, possessive jealousy, and selfish need. Because I don't like that troubled look on your face."In a relationship that also hinted at a homosexual connection, Hunsecker had bargained with success-seeking, hustling, slick, unethical and smarmy, PR press agent Sidney Falco (Tony Curtis) to ruin their romance. To end the strong affection between Skipper and Brick [and to test her suspicions about an unnatural (homosexual) relationship between them], Maggie thought she could lead Skipper to sleep with her to arouse her husband's anger at his best friend [and to prove that her suspicions were untrue - that Skipper was indeed heterosexual.] Brick admitted that he felt responsibility for Skipper's despairing death because he had rejected his friend and ruthlessly hung up on his anguished call from the hotel room.
At one point, he told her:"You know, dear, we're drifting apart, you and I, and I don't like it. Sidney attempted to regain the displeased columnist's good graces after failing to break up Susie's romance, and received tacit approval to carry out his secretive, 'uncharitable' deed/scam and 'deliver' - for later rewards given in secret (rewards of publicity). The stereotypical, libelous accusations were that the bohemian musician, Steve Dallas, was both a marijuana smoker and a card-carrying Communist: The dreamy marijuana smoke of a lad who heads a high-brow jazz quintet is giving an inelegant odor to that elegant East Side club where he works. When Sidney saved her from throwing herself off the balcony, J. arrived home, and assumed the worst - that Falco had sexually assaulted his sister. At the half-opened front door, she announced that she was leaving for good: The Southern marital drama by director Richard Brooks Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958) was a powerful, highly-charged, moving story of a neurotic, dysfunctional Southern family with its rivalries, tensions, and avarice. He projected onto Maggie his own guilt about Skipper's death.
