The Island Film Group will gather this month to watch a classic pairing of Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor.

The group will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11 at the Bainbridge Public Library for a screening of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tennessee Williams, the film follows Brick, an alcoholic ex-football player, who drinks his days away and resists the affections of his wife, Maggie. His reunion with his father, Big Daddy, who is dying of cancer, jogs a host of memories and revelations for both father and son.

The Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film was released in 1958 and was one of the year’s biggest box office hits — and earned six Oscar nominations, as well. Directed by Richard Brooks, it also stars Burl Ives.

A discussion session will follow the movie.
