Feature Film Friday: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958)

I’m a really big fan of most, if not all, of Tennessee Williams’ plays- but I love Cat on a Hot Tin Roof for it’s starring cast and the fact that it gives me the excuse to yell “Mendacity!” all the time. In case you haven’t seen this movie, mendacity – being the tendency to … Continue reading

Having come from a super diverse background (I’ve got a little spanish, some french, a little german, a touch of italian, a pinch of polish, and a spoonful of jewish in me) – I naturally appreciate the old ways of slowing down, and enjoying a good cup of coffee.
