Cat People (13 days of Halloween)

Not the 1982 remake featuring Nastassja Kinski, the 1942 Val Lewton classic featuring the fabulous Simone Simon and all those gorgeous great cats depressingly contained in small cages with cement floors. (Guess which one is one the Library of Congress United States National Film Registry? Not the 1982 remake featuring Nastassja Kinski).

It’s amusing to listen to film geeks bickering about whether this one is technically Film Noir or Horror, I don’t see why it can’t be both. Regardless, it’s got great sound design – the swimming pool scene! – and it’s still lots of fun.
