Maggie The Cat

It's another of those movies I had never watched from start to finish.
But I watched it last night.
Did Elizabeth Taylor ever look better? Wowzer!
Like a fresh strawberry shortcake with whipped cream and a cherry on top, I watched as "Brick", Paul Newman's character, parried any advance "Maggie the Cat" made on him and wondered-
Does "Brick" ever get to taste that delightful dessert?

Do you remember how the movie ends?

She certainly looked goregous in that movie. Of course, she looked pretty good most of the time.

And yes, I remember how the movie ends.

I saw it when it came out, years ago, and can't remember much of the movie at all, unfortunately. I recently purchased, however, a DVD of Cleopatra and was indeed "wowed" at the stunning looks of Taylor. Newman, I think, was much the better actor and had a wider range, but Taylor on a good day was spot on.

COHTR was one of the movies adapted from Williams, and I was never much of a southern-oriented afficianado of plays or films. Or Williams.

But both actors were GREAT.



BIG Daddy!! What a great movie, and Taylor never looked better.
