"Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that’s a real treat."

Summer Movie List — 6 / ? → Cat on a Hot Tin Roof [1958]

Life ain’t just a bunch of high spots. You’re a thirty-year-old kid. Soon you’ll be a fifty-year-old kid, pretendin’ you’re hearin’ cheers when there ain’t any. Dreamin’ and drinkin’ your life away. Heroes in the real world live twenty-four hours a day, not just two hours in a game. Mendacity, you won’t… you won’t live with mendacity, but you’re an expert at it. The truth is pain and sweat and payin’ bills and makin’ love to a woman that you don’t love any more. Truth is dreams that don’t come true and nobody prints your name in the paper ‘til you die… The truth is, you never growed up. Grown-ups don’t hang up on their friends… and they don’t hang up on their wives… and they don’t hang up on life. Now that’s the truth and that’s what you can’t face!

This film was originally to be filmed in black and white, as was the standard practice with “artistic” films in the 1950s. However, once Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor were cast in the leads, director Richard Brooks insisted on shooting in color, in deference to the public’s well known enthusiasm for Taylor’s violet and Newman’s strikingly blue eyes.
