Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Plot hole: How Brick is still standing (all be it on one leg!) during what appears to be a 12 hour period, after consuming the best part of two bottles of bourbon, coming through a personal crisis and self awareness, followed by instant maturation, then ending the night between the sheets with his wife is truly amazing in the least.

Continuity mistake: After Maggie (Liz Taylor) goes outside to confront Brick at the car during a raging rainstorm getting thoroughly soaked, she appears a short time later in the drawing room in the same dress, immaculate hairstyle and makeup, looking like she hadn't seen a single drop of water.

Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: You know what I feel like? I feel all the time like a cat on a hot tin roof.
Brick Pollitt: Then jump off the roof, Maggie. Jump off it. Cats jump off roofs and land uninjured. Do it. Jump.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: Jump where? Into what?

More quotes from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Trivia: Brick's (Paul Newman) latent homosexuality seems to be purposely avoided in the movie's screenplay, as opposed to the original Williams play. Probably so as not to offend sensitive 50's audiences. Modern audiences will more than likely pick up the signs and wonder '...is he?'.
