A high-stepping feline

Something about roofing material and a puddy cat.

No mendacity here.

How did it get up there? Probably burnt its paws?

Just one of several stupendous Burl Ives performances from this year. Although this was not the one which earned him an Oscar.

Love the "mendacity" reference, Ron.

Isn't that the way Megamind referred to Menda City?

No way kitty is going to walk on warm tins.
To state such would be mendacity.
So says Big Daddy.

This film was curiously absent any composer reference as I recall...

Produced during the infamous musicicans strike that followed the breakup of studio orchestras. Many films were temped with stock music.

This one has a bit of music at the beginning from stock.

Which is odd, since Big Daddy is a more prominent and more demanding role than that of the Big Country patriarch, and CAT was, I suspect, the more successful movie at the box office. And wouldn't MGM have provided more studio support than United Artists?

You'd think.

On the other hand, Hollywood was a bit more sedate in 1958. "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" was more prurient than "The Big Country". And Ives kicked ass in both...but he was more "acceptable" to the voting membership in "The Big Country".
