Gregory Peck won an Oscar® for his brilliant performance as the Southern lawyer who defends a black man accused of rape in this film version of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The way in which it captures a time, a place, and above all, a mood, makes this film a masterpiece. The setting is a dusty Southern town during the Depression. A white woman accuses a black man of rape. Though he is obviously innocent, the outcome of his trial is such a foregone conclusion that no lawyer will step forward to defend him – except Atticus Finch, the town's most distinguished citizen. His compassionate defense costs him many friendships but earns him the respect and admiration of his two motherless children.
John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing

Based on the story The Wisdom of Eve by Mary Orr, All About Eve is an elegantly bitchy backstage story revolving around aspiring actress Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter). Tattered and forlorn, Eve shows up in the dressing room of Broadway mega-star Margo Channing (Bette Davis), weaving a melancholy life story to Margo and her friends. Taking pity on the girl, Margo takes Eve as her personal assistant. Before long, it becomes apparent that naïve Eve is a Machiavellian conniver who cold-bloodedly uses Margo, her director Bill Sampson (Gary Merill), Lloyd's wife Karen (Celeste Holm), and waspish critic Addison De Witt (George Sanders) to rise to the top of the theatrical heap. Also appearing in All About Eve is Marilyn Monroe, introduced by Addison De Witt as "a graduate of the Copacabana school of dramatic art." This is but one of the hundreds of unforgettable lines penned by writer/director Joseph L. Mankiewicz, the most famous of which is Margo Channing's lip-sneering admonition, "Fasten your seat belts. It's going to be a bumpy night." All About Eve received 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Burl Ives
Future Academy Award winners Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman star in this screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The raw emotions and crackling dialogue rumble like a thunderstorm in this film version whose fiery performances and grown-up themes made it one of 1958's top box-office hits, while receiving six Oscar nominations (including "Best Picture"). As the family of a wealthy Southern patriarch (Burl Ives) learns that he is dying of cancer, lies and secrets surface that threaten to rip the family apart. One self-seeking son (Jack Carson) claims to love his father, while favorite son and troubled ex-sports hero Brick (Newman), drinks, won't have sex with the beautiful wife (Taylor) who adores him, and refuses to honestly confront the reason why. "I'm not living with you," Maggie snaps at Brick. "We occupy the same cage, that's all." Newman earned his first Oscar nomination, while Taylor snagged her second. Her Maggie the Cat is a vivid portrait of passionate loyalty, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a film that sizzles.
