Lunch + A Movie: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
April 2, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CDT
Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play by Tennessee Williams, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof starred Paul Newman, Elizabeth Taylor, and Burl Ives. Nominated for six Academy Awards, the film may have been too controversial for the Academy voters, and did not garner any wins. Williams was reportedly unhappy with the toned-down screenplay adaption, and remarked, “This movie will set the industry back 50 years.” Join Ward Emling, retired director of the Mississippi Film Commission, for more interesting insights into this 1958 film.
