Long DescriptionThe Definitive "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" 27 October 1999 | Review by peacham (Pa.) on IMDb Forget The watered down film version from 1958. Forget the ridiculous tacked on "happy" ending between Newman and a Miscast Liz Taylor...this is the ultimate film version of Williams greatest play. The screenplay is direct from Williams' outstanding revised 1974 text with one of the greatest ending scenes in theatre history. Tommy Lee Jones has never been better than as the alcoholic Brick Pollitt. Jessica Lange is so sexy,manipulative and tortured as Maggie that you don't know if you want to hit her or make love to her. The agony put forth in these two characters manifests itself to perfection in these perfect actors. As wonderful as Jones and Lange are, they are still outdone by Rip Torn as Big Daddy. "He's never turned gentleman." Maggie says of her father-in-law and that's the honest truth in Torn's magnetic,engaging and touching performance. His Act II scene with Brick is some of the best screen acting I have ever witnessed. Kim Stanley gives us a very human and warm Big Mamma, unlike Judith Anderson's cold matriarch in the 1958 version; and Penny Fuller and David Dukes ooze bile as the Greedy Gooper and Mae. This is a film to be watched over and over. Finally a CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF on screen Williams could be proud of !
