Trivia

Elizabeth Taylor and her husband, Michael Todd, had planned for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958) to be her final film, as she intended to retire from the screen. Todd had made a verbal agreement about this with MGM, but after his death, MGM forced Taylor to make this film in order to fulfill the terms of her studio contract. As a result, Taylor refused to speak to the director for the entire production, and hated the film. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Legget is Trap Shooting with his wife Emily, he changes from a single shot, breech shotgun to a Remmington Semi Auto 1100, that is not a breech break shotgun as it was in the initial shot in the scene. See more »

Quotes

Gloria Wandrous: Terrible, isn't it, Steve? I say "yes" too much when I shouldn't and you say "no" too much when you shouldn't.

User Reviews

Extremely good-looking film holds your interest.
18 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

When I started watching this film, I didn't know what to expect. At first it seemed like a slick, empty showcase for Elizabeth Taylor's beauty. However, it gradually turned into an involving (and extremely good-looking) little drama. You may have heard that it is campy; that's not true, although there is an unnecessary little speech by Harvey at the end. It's slickly produced, well-paced, entertaining and has an excellent cast.
