Guest Speaker: Best-selling author WILLIAM J. MANN with How to Be a Movie Star: Elizabeth Taylor in Hollywood

The definitive film adaptation of Tennessee Williams's breathtaking play about a crazed southern family torn apart by greed. Larger-than-life patriarch Big Daddy lays dying, and the members of his brood clamor for the inheritance. Paul Newman is Brick, the alcoholic son struggling in the shadow of his powerful father, and Elizabeth Taylor is Maggie, Brick's lingerie-clad temptress of a wife who will do anything for the love of her cold husband. Tensions mount as the family is forced together under one roof, where secrets are revealed and relationships are lost and found. Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman's performances are iconic; the heat and hatred between them ignites the screen, fueled by Tennessee Williams's insightful and brilliant dialogue. USA, 2007, 87 min.

About the author:
William J. Manns best-selling biography of Katharine Hepburn, Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn, received extraordinary acclaim when it was published in 2006. Historian David Thomson, writing for the New York Observer, said the book set new standards in movie biography and The New York Times named Kate one of the 100 Notable Books of 2006. His first biography, Wisecracker: The Life and Times of William Haines, told the story of the early Hollywood icon and interior decorator to the stars, and won the Lambda Literary Award for 1999. It has recently been optioned as a feature film.
