Cat on A Hot Tin Roof Sundaes

My mother once said “Elizabeth Taylor is the most beautiful woman in the world,” and I grew up accepting this belief as firm truth.  It wasn’t until years later that I learned this was her opinion, though the deed had already been done.  I adored anything Elizabeth Taylor with fervent passion.  Which is why I was so delighted recently to rediscover her passionate elegance in Cat on A Hot Tin Roof, a poignant drama about Brick Politt (played on screen by the divine Paul Newman) and his wife Maggie “The Cat” (played by Elizabeth Taylor), and their tempetuous relationship in a play woven together by Tennessee Williams.  If you haven’t yet seen Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, it’s high time you do.  What better way to “heat up” a weekend  that with a screen party, complete with Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Sundaes.  Here are all the details you’ll need, including a recipe for movie-inspired ice cream sundaues, and few of the movies best lines.
