Principal Cast

CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (1958) Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize play thunders across the screen in a powerful film adaptation starring Elizabeth Taylor as frustrated Southern belle wife Maggie the Cat and Paul Newman as her disillusioned ex-athlete husband.

FATHER OF THE BRIDE (1950) Taylor is the bride and Spencer Tracy is her harried father in this comic celebration of an American rite (and wrongs) of passage. Here comes the bride, there goes dad’s wallet…and everyone’s heart. What sparkling fun!

BUTTERFIELD 8 (1960) “I’m not like anyone. I’m me!” Taylor won her first Best Actress Academy Award as a call girl whose life comes with a complete set of emotional baggage, courtesy of married lover Laurence Harvey and stalwart friend Eddie Fisher.

THE SANDPIPER (1965) Rapturous Big Sur is the backdrop as a minister (Richard Burton) is torn between his yearnings for a beautiful free spirit (Taylor) and his love for his wife (Eva Marie Saint). Featuring the Academy Award-winning Best Song The Shadow of Your Smile.
