Summary
Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, and Burl Ives turn in searing performances as members of a neurotic Southern family in this superb adaptation of Tennessee Williams' perceptive, prize-winning play. The clan has gathered to face the impending death of their patriarch, Big Daddy. As the domineering plantation king, Burl Ives roars and snorts with gusto, while the greedy relatives claw, scratch, and lie in their battle over the inheritance of his vast estate. Paul Newman is Brick, the favored son, a tortured, boozing ex-football star who cannot face up to adult responsibility. Prowling and snarling, Elizabeth Taylor commands the screen as Maggie the Cat, Brick's new wife, whose hot tin roof is the bed she no longer shares with her husband. Directed by Richard Brooks. The DVD print, which is part of Warner Brothers' Tennessee Wiliams Film Collection, contains the following special features: commentary by biorapher Donald Spoto; featurette; theatrical trailer; English and French Dolby Digital Mono; English, French and Spanish subtitles; letterboxed widescreen; dual layer format
