Universal Pictures was one of the few major studios that did not own a theater chain. Consequently, it had a long history of interesting marketing tactics (see Carl Laemmle) to sell it's films to independent theaters. In the B-picture horror genre, it would often release films as part of a double bill. This film was originally released in the spring of 1946 with She-Wolf of London (1946). See more »
THE CAT CREEPS over the years has gotten a bum rap that it did not deserve. It has an all too familiar plot, sure, but it also has a darn good cast of character actors who are fun to watch, particularly Noah Beery, Jr. And exactly what is he up to when he peeks out of a room, rope in one hand and the "mystery women" in the background??? It has its moments, all about the search for missing loot in a creepy old house, this time on a deserted island. One by one the cast of characters are bumped off, one falling head first on to a pitch fork, all the while a black cat slinks around in the background. Its a good Universal time killer, pardon the pun, the kind of second bill stuff the studio churned out in the 40s and its worth a second look, if not for sentimental reasons, for all us big kids who saw it on the Late Late Show a long time ago.
