Starring: David Niven, Gigi Perreau, Peter Miles
Directed by: Irving Reis
Synopsis: A multi-generational story about a British family living in London from the turn of the century through World War II and their struggles in finding and losing love.
Kitty Cameos: In an early flashback scene Rollo (David Niven) is remembering himself as a young boy (Peter Miles) with Lark (Gigi Perreau), a girl who was orphaned and brought to live with the family by their father. Rollo comes downstairs the morning after Lark’s arrival and finds the little girl looking out of a window. She explains that there is a cat stuck in the tree. We see a white cat in the bare tree outside.
Rollo explains that cats are always getting stuck in the tree. In a later scene, Rollo (as an elderly man) looks out the window and sees a black cat as it attempts to climb down from the same tree.
Final Mewsings: Cats get pretty dirty after being stuck in a tree for numerous decades.
