Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
The family of "Big Daddy" Pollitt (Burl Ives) convenes at his and Big Momma's (Dame Judith Anderson's). Among the attendees is alcoholic son, Brick (Paul Newman); an ex-football player, who spends his time drinking and avoiding the ministries of his libidinous wife, Maggie (Dame Elizabeth Taylor) - "the cat". As this gathering isn't so much as a gathering but a farewell (Big Daddy is terminally ill) a lot of memories and revelations which had been hidden come to the surface of both father and son.

Because I tried to kill your Aunt Maggie
Nothing at all
You've got to
That's the truth
Maggie the cat is alive
Your claws are showing
He's wearing Brick's birthday present
Sometimes I wish I had a pill to make...
People like doing what they used to do
I'm talking in Big Daddy's languge now
You know what I feel like

Or will or will never
Why did you and Brick suddenly decide to...
Why'd you let Mama buy all this stuff
Ya little no neck monster
You shut up
We've still got one thing on our side
Let's go home
We never were a very happy family
It was the punch bowl
Don't make a fool of yourself
Bought most of it when I took your...
You said I never loved Big Daddy
What makes him so big
Do you make Brick happy
What's all this about
Grown ups don't hang up on their friends
