The fifth Tennessee Williams play to reach the screen, wealthy Mississippi plantation owner Big Daddy Pollitt, unaware that he’s dying of cancer and disturbed by the strained and childless marriage of his favored alcoholic son Brick and his other son, Gooper, whose wife is about to bring forth another in the endless line of little “no-neck monsters,” celebrates his sixty-fifth birthday with his family. Brick’s wife, Maggie, beautiful and desirable, tries unsuccessfully to coax her husband away from the bottle, while alternately enticing him and taunting him about his obsession with his deceased best friend and the guilt about their relationship. The seamy tensions reach a climax when the truth of Big Daddy’s health is revealed, and he and Brick manage to resolve their differences.

Life is cold, bitter, with a detestable but somewhat invigorating taste, and it sounds like a pianistic jazzy score : entertaining when your eyes are closed but soulless when the windows of your heart are…Sincerely, I could have turned off the film just because I couldn't buy the idea of a man refusing to have sex with such a babe like Maggie the Cat, Elizabeth Taylor at the Everest of her beauty, even if this guy is the male-crush inducing Paul Newman, as Brick Politt. I guess movies ought to challenge our perceptions. Maggie even wishes Brick was ugly so she could at least console herself, but she loves Brick, and can't get him off her mind. They're married, but he hasn't touched her since a tragic event made her undesirable. Hard to…
