Me? I'm a beacon of compassion.

"Life was not easy, nor was it happy, but she did not expect life to be easy, and if it was not happy - that was a woman's lot."

Get To Know Me Meme  → Crucial Movies [7/10]: Cat On A Hot Tin Roof (1958)

"Where did I fail you? Where did I make my mistake?"

This film was originally to be filmed in black and white, as was the standard practice with “artistic” films in the 1950s. (Virtually all film adaptations of the plays of Tennessee Williams had been in B&W up to that time.) However, once Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor were cast in the leads, director Richard Brooks insisted on shooting in color, in deference to the public’s well known enthusiasm for Taylor’s violet and Newman’s strikingly blue eyes.

Steven Spielberg - “I saw sexual evil. It is all about subtlety: there were moments of kindness that would move across his eyes and then instantly run cold.”

Ralph Fiennes - “I got close to his pain. Inside him is a fractured, miserable human being. I feel split about him, sorry for him. He’s like some dirty, battered doll I was given and that I came to feel peculiarly attached to.”

"It’s a funny word, beautiful. Once you start to use it too much, it falls apart. I feel more comfortable using the word beauty or beautiful to describe light, dawn, the sea, mist, a moment in the sunlight, a shape, a man looking across the ice of the frozen river in Pushkin’s estate. To see the dots of men who drill holes in the ice when they are fishing, that to me seems beautiful."  - Ralph Fiennes (July 1998)

An actress must be able to assume different dialects, accents, mannerisms and actions… No matter how much she must change her personality she must always seem natural. That is the hard part of the job. - Vivien Leigh
