She sure was hot in Cat on a hot tin roof.
She was "hot" in lots of movies, if you like her type (I do).
But she was also a really good actresss when she had the right material. Cat was one such role. The material doesn't stand up 100% by today's standards, but she did an amazing job wiith it. And the stuff she did in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" was remarkable. Disturbing, but remarkable.
She also had quite a career as a child actress.
