    Description

    Cat People (RKO, R-1954). Half Sheet (22" X 28"). Simone Simon stars as Irene, a wife whose jealous streak turns her into a cat, or does it? Producer Val Lewton and director Jacques Tourneur collaborated for the first time on this classic horror film. Lewton demanded a style which only suggested events rather than show them outright, which paid off at the box office. "Cat People" was a major hit for RKO and the two men went on to make a series of moody and atmospheric horror films for the studio. Posters for "Cat People" are hot commodities and are seldom available. There are small tears, staple holes, and an area of toning in the borders and one center fold line. This 1954 re-issue half sheet has graphics that closely resemble the extremely rare and highly coveted Style B half sheet. Fine/Very Fine.
