I love vintage movies – nothing better to watch on a Sunday with a glass of wine. What better to make a gallery of then cats in classic movies! Here are a few I did (and didn’t) know about. Keep reading to see lots of clips from vintage movies… enjoy!
Baby – Bringing Up Baby (1938)
Here is one movie I havent’ seen yet. The plot line of Bringing Up Baby revolves around a paleontologist (Cary Grant) who is trying to secure a $1 million donation for his museum, and his pursuer, the flighty and often irritating heiress (Katherine Hepburn) and her pet leopard “Baby.” Its a comedy and now its right at the top of movies I want to watch!
Cat – Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961)
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favourite movies. Who can resist Audrey Hepburn. Her adorable and imaginatively named pet “Cat” is probably the most spoiled kitty, he always seems to hang around for a good party and a little bit of love. Its so sweet when Audrey chases after Cat to find him near the end. She loved that guy. Points to the guy who made this video cutting together all the scenes with Cat in it. Meow!
Jake – The Cat From Outer Space (1978)
So the plot line of this movie is a UFO becomes stranded on earth and impounded by the US government. Its pilot, a cat with a collar that has special powers, including the ability to allow the cat to communicate with humans, has eluded the authorities and needs the help of a man named Frank in order to reclaim and repair his ship to get back home. If you look carefully you can see the actors who played Potter and Blake in M.A.S.H as main characters here!
Irina – Cat People (1942)
There are two makes of this film… The original was made in 1942, and another remake in 1982. The plotline of this movie centres around the legend of the “cat people”, who evolves from women who were sacrificed to Panthers, and a new mutant human/Panter evolved. (And yes its a vintage erotic horror flick). I’ve heard some good reviews about this movie saying that it is a challenging psychological movie to watch…. So looking forward to watching it to see what its like!
