Cat People (1942)

Okay, I don’t have a cat of my own to take pictures of, or even a neighborhood cat. But we did just watch Cat People — the great 1942 Val Lewton original, not the Nastassja Kinski version from 1982. 🙂

It’s always good when you watch a low-budget film that simply suggests horror outclass a film that has to show every detail. Of course, the original version does have a lead actor who apparently wasn’t paid to show any expression at all.

BTW, I have to credit American Art Archives for the image. They have a great page featuring the artwork of William Rose, who did the poster above.
