In the spirit of the day, I have a movie recommendation: Cat People, the 1942 feature produced by Val Lewton. The films saved the studio RKO from financial disaster.
I have been somewhat ambivalent to the film myself, but other more noted film scholars; published reports indicate that it is one of Roger Ebert’s favorite films. Here is a link to the essay from Mr. Ebert himself.
So unlike most movie recommendations that come fully supported by their author, I submit that you view Cat People and judge for yourself. Feel free to post your comments below.
Happy viewing and Happy Halloween!
