Brick is not in denial over his sexual identity, merely guilty for rejecting a friend because he was ‘weak.’ To clear up any doubts, Brick caresses Maggie’s nightgown in the bathroom, ‘proving’ he’s actually pining for her. At first Newman, a graduate of New York’s Actors Studio, had reservations about starring with Elizabeth Taylor whose approach to acting was entirely different from his own. Yet, despite their different backgrounds, the two actors had a potent on-screen chemistry together. Unfortunately, it was during this film that Taylor’s husband, Mike Todd, was killed in a plane crash, causing the production to be delayed until Taylor was emotionally ready to return to work. The delays also cost MGM their original leading lady when Grace Kelly left acting to become Princess of Monaco. She had just scored meaty roles in Giant and Raintree County and, at the urging of third husband Mike Todd, was eager to establish herself as a solid dramatic actress.

- But it took so long to come up with a screenplay that would be true to Williams’ sexually charged story while still getting past the industry’s Production Code censors, that Dean never made it to the screen in the role.
- A March 5, 1958 Hollywood Reporter news item adds George Davis to the cast; however, his appearance in the final film has not been confirmed.

I also wish to acknowledge that this mural installation was a collaboration of talents. Paper articles can only be so long, and alas what was not included in this article were the very talented carpenters Donny Turnell and Billy Dylan of South Mountain. They are such talented men, and we had so much fun deconstructing and reconstructing the 3-D parts of the mural/installation. John Abrams’s team of craftsmen/wood workers made fantasies come to life, and I only wish I could make magic on that level of collaborative creativity all the time. THANK YOU ALL. Also, Linda Carnegie was not mentioned in regards to her brilliant artistry in the original Hot Tin Roof. It is important that the light be shared with these other creative beings.
