The Cat and the Canary

Type: New Blu-Ray

Take one gloomy mansion in the Louisiana bayou, add a group of relatives gathered for a will reading and marked for elimination by a mysterious killer, and sprinkle in some classic Bob Hope one-liners, and you get this lively updating of the "old dark house" chiller. Paulette Goddard is the heiress who catches wise-cracking actor Wally Campbell's (Hope) eye. Third film version of the 1922 stage play co-stars Gale Sondergaard, George Zucco, John Beal, Douglass Montgomery. 75 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English; Subtitles: English; audio commentary; theatrical trailer.
