The first of the horror films producer Val Lewton made for RKO Pictures redefined the genre by leaving its most frightening terrors to its audience's imagination.

Simone Simon stars as a Serbian émigré in Manhattan who believes that, because of an ancient curse, any physical intimacy with the man she loves (Kent Smith) will turn her into a feline predator.

1942. Not rated. Run time: 73 minutes.

This film is part of the "Our Monsters, Ourselves: The Legacy of Pre-code Horror" Series in collaboration with Union College and will be introduced by Kristin Bidoshi, Professor of Russian and Director of Russian and East European Studies at Union College.
