Despite his latest medical report being clean, in reality he truly does have terminal colon cancer, something the doctor only tells Big Daddy’s two sons, Gooper Pollitt, a lawyer, and Brick Pollitt, who recently left his job as a sportscaster. Brooding Brick and his wife Maggie Pollitt, who have driven up from New Orleans for the occasion, are going through a long rough patch in their marriage. Brick wanted to split, but Maggie convinced him to stay married on the condition that she not pressure him for sex. In their troubles, Brick has turned to the bottle, leading to a drunken incident which has left Brick currently on crutches. Maggie believes Gooper and his wife Mae Pollitt are trying to orchestrate Brick out of Big Daddy’s will. Brick and Maggie’s saving grace is Big Daddy has greater affinity for them than Gooper and Mae. Maggie is beautiful and Brick was a star athlete, specifically in football and track. As Gooper and Mae have a sixth child on the way, Maggie also believes they could combat anything Gooper and Mae could do by having a child of their own. In his current state, Brick has contempt for everyone and everything around him, which includes Big Daddy’s money. All Brick and Maggie’s problems seem to center on their respective relationships with Brick’s high school friend and football partner, Skipper, and events in their lives just prior to Skipper’s death. What happens not only with Brick and Maggie but the entire Pollitt family may depend on if Brick can reconcile himself with his life, much of which is currently in Big Daddy’s house, including Maggie.
Plot: An alcoholic ex-football player drinks his days away, having failed to come to terms with his sexuality and his real feelings for his football buddy who died after an ambiguous accident. His wife is crucified by her desperation to make him desire her: but he resists the affections of his wife. His reunion with his father—who is dying of cancer—jogs a host of memories and revelations for both father and son.

They sure can act!!
Before seeing this movie, I was questioning if Elizabeth Taylor could actually act. After seeing this movie, I was truly impressed by not only Liz Taylor, but the whole cast. I love how everything folded out and it was quite realistic. I loved the story, the acting, the MAGNIFICENT script and the depth of the characters. They are played to perfection. I’m not really a drama sort of a person – I prefer cheery movies – but I loved this movie because it completely held my attention. Now I know what all the fuss is about – I understand why this is a classic. This movie will always stick in my brain because I can really relate to it. Great drama, but leaves you feeling good and satisfied.
Would normally say a 9
However, Elizabeth Taylor is the most gorgeous woman ever filmed in this movie. Because she oozes sexual frustration and deep desire as Maggie, who’s jockeying for both a stake in the family estate and in Brick’s heart, she is all too compelling to watch. And the rest of the cast along with the films message make this a stand-out.
