Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

I've had it recorded for ages, and finally watched it tonight. Despite its age, Taylor and Newman smolder.

And Brick's last line? I won't spoil it, but mercy me. *fans self* I tell you, sometimes the opacity of implication demanded by old Hollywood standards made for a lot more screen sizzle than today's show-all scenes. Showing it is sometimes the lazy way, compared to the heat generated by a good, sexually-charged script that leaves you reaching for a cold drink.
