Despite what some say, I don't think this is very neutered. When I first watched it without knowing the plot, I got the whole post-Brokeback situation just fine.

I think those of us who watch the movie first have a different view of it than those who've seen the play first. Although I much prefer the stage ending rather than the bullshit reconciliation between Newman and Taylor.

I sorta love all three versions (the two versions of the stage script and this screenplay), albeit for different reasons...

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof! Great play, great film, but with a terrible ending!

I do love Big Daddy's frankness about his sexuality in the stage version.

Madeleine Sherwood and Jack Carson in one of the late-50s, early-60s washed-out adaptations of William's work (Sweet Bird, Mrs. Stone, Suddenly Last Summer, Summer and Smoke, Streetcar). Something I enjoyed was the opportunity to see brief apppearances by Brian and Hugh Corcoran. I loved those child-star siblings. Especially the sometimes obnoxious Kevin.
