Die Katze auf dem heißen Blechdach by Tennessee Williams( Visual )

8 editions published between 1958 and 2008 in German and English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als Tennessee Williams' Stück 1955 am Broadway mit großem Erfolg aufgeführt wurde, entschloß sich Hollywood zu einer Verfilmung dieses Stoffes. In diesem kraftvollen und glänzend gespielten Melodram gelangt es Regisseur Richard Brooks, die Williamsche Atmosphäre und seine bissigen Dialoge in ihrer vollen Wirkung zu bewahren. Seine Studie über die Verlogenheit von Menschen wird getragen durch die überragende Leistung der Hauptdarsteller Elizabeth Taylor als Maggie und dem bis dahin noch unbekannten Paul Newman, der mit der Rolle des ständig betrunkenen Brick seinen schauspielerischen Durchbruch hatte. Dieses leidenschaftliche Drama erhielt 1958 sechs Oscar-Nominierungen (u.a. bester Film) und gilt bis heute als Meisterwerk des Melodrams in der Filmgeschichte
