(Butterfield 8: Academy Award for Best Actress/Elizabeth Taylor; Cat on a Hot Tin Roof: Nominated for Best Picture, Actor/Paul Newman, and Actress/Elizabeth Taylor, Director/Richard Brooks) Based on the Pulitzer Prizewinning play by Tennessee Williams, 1958's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof stars Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman as a tragically mismatched couple under the thumb of "Big Daddy," played by Burl Ives. In the second half of this double feature, Butterfield 8—a 1960 adaption of John O'Hara's novel—finds Taylor in especially fine form as a Manhattan call girl who falls in love with a married man (Laurence Harvey), with tragic results.
