1950s? movie, fat man in white suit with grown up family in southern USA mansion


Could also have been 1960s or 1940s. Not much happens, I recall they spend some time on the porch of the southern USA mansion. In black and white probably.

Does anyone know which movie or movies this may have been?

Thanks.

Could it be Cat on a Hot Tin Roof from 1958? Burl Ives would be the fat man.

Thanks for your replies.

I have watched the technicolor film COAHTR, and sorry that was not it. It was not so busy, and more outdoor.

Sorry, nothing biblical in it as far as I recall.

It was set in about the time it was filmed, so nothing 19th. century or historic either.

Now I think of it, the family had declined or were declining in wealth.

I wonder how many fat American male film actors there are who were middle-aged in the 1950s?

How about the Magnificent Ambersons. I'm not sure if Orson Wells was very fat then - he was in later life.

Thank you Steve R, it was most likely The Long Hot Summer 1958, unless there is another similar film.
