Cat People (RKO, 1942). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Val Lewton produced this moody and magnificent film on a very modest budget but managed to create one of the most frightening films of the 1940s. Beautiful Simone Simon stars as a woman who turns into a panther when emotionally charged. Cat People was the first in a series of films that made Lewton an icon in the genre. The paper for this title is among the most sought after by horror enthusiasts.

This was producer Val Lewton's roaring start into the genre. It remains one of the moodiest and most suspenseful films to define the horror genre. Simone Simon portrays a woman who believes she will turn into a black panther if she becomes emotionally aroused. But when she meets Kent Smith, she falls in love anyway and eventually marries him. Smith fears that Simon's mental condition is straining their marriage and sends her to a psychiatrist. It's then that Simon believes another woman is interfering and she resorts to the only way she can defend her relationship. The film was directed to perfection by Jacques Tourneur who used shadows to create suspense and deliberately avoided the special effects that would confirm if Simon really had the ability to turn herself into a cat or not. To this day, Cat People is considered a masterpiece of the genre and the posters, which are just as mysterious as the film, are among the most sought after.
