More Info The Curse of the Cat People

Movie Review "In a film called 'The Curse of the Cat People' you would hardly expect to find a quite wistful and apealing little story of a small girl's fantasies. Yet that is surprisingly the substance of the new tenant on the Rialto's screen and you could have knocked us over with a snowball when we saw it in that usually lurid place...It makes a rare departure from the ordinary run of horror films and emerges as an oddly touching study of the working of a sensitive child's mind...The whole conception and construction of this picture indicates an imaginative approach."

—Bosley Crowther, The New York Times, March 4, 1944.
