Leonard Maltin Ratings & Review
LEONARD MALTIN MOVIE RATING






3 out of 4 Stars
LEONARD MALTIN MOVIE REVIEW:
D: Jacques Tourneur. Simone Simon, Kent Smith, Tom Conway, Jack Holt, Jane Randolph. Storyline and plot elements don't hold up, but moments of shock and terror are undiminished in the first of producer Val Lewton's famous horror films. Smith falls in love with strange, shy woman (Simon) who fears ancient curse of the panther inside her. Followed by THE CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE. Remade in 1982.
