Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the classic 1958 Richard Brooks (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film) family relationship alcoholism suppressed homosexuality melodrama ("All the sultry drama of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize Play is now on the screen!"; "Every sultry moment of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize Winning Play is now on the screen!"; "This is Maggie the Cat..."; "Maggie...the Cat"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; "Based on the Play 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' by Tennessee Williams"; in the original written version of the play, Big Daddy is a fairly minor character who is mostly off-screen, and there is a clear indication that Brick and Skipper had a homosexual relationship; when the play was performed on Broadway, it was rewritten to tone down those references; when the play became a movie, an entire end act was added, which drastically beefed up Big Daddy's part and changed the script quite a bit; the first two versions were written by Tennessee Williams, and the screenplay was written by director Richard Brooks; about the alcoholic adult son of a very wealthy man who is terminally ill, and how his family members gather around him waiting for him to die; interestingly, director Elia Kazan seemed like he should have directed this movie, but he wanted Williams to change the third act, and he refused; MGM hired George Cukor to direct the movie, but he refused BECAUSE the screenplay had been changed to eliminate the homosexual references, and screenwriter Richard Brooks stepped in to direct what many consider a masterpiece!) starring Elizabeth Taylor (nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for this film; "This is Maggie the Cat..."), Paul Newman (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; as Brick Pollitt), Burl Ives (as Big Daddy Pollitt), Jack Carson (as Gooper Pollitt), Judith Anderson (as Ida 'Big Momma' Pollitt), and Madeleine Sherwood (as Mae Flynn Pollitt)
