Episode #11: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958)

MGM

 

Lock the door: for our April devotional to Paul Newman, we’re revisiting Cat on a Hot Tin Roof with BW/DR contributor and Vulture critic Roxana Hadadi. Join us as we get into the irrepressible chemistry of Newman and Elizabeth Taylor, the pitfalls and opportunities of stage-to-screen adaptation, where Tennessee Williams’s queer plot went, stormy weather indoors and out, and how Cat served as a fulcrum for both stars’ careers. Read Roxana’s 2019 essay on the film here, and her piece on Newman’s Road to Perdition here.
