Starring: Googie Withers, Edward Chapman
Directed by: Robert Hamer
Synopsis: An escaped convict named Tommy Swann (John McCallum) shows up at the home of his former lover Rose (Googie Withers) who is now married and has a family.
Purr Blurs: In the opening scene a black cat is seen sitting in front of a gated pub. A newspaper page is blowing across the sidewalk and hits the cat, who then moves on.
A cat is referred to early in the film but only shows up a few times, mostly barely visible in the background. In one scene when Rose goes outside to see Tommy the cat can just be seen through the birdcage as it climbs onto the fence.
The cat is barely seen climbing onto the fence again through the window in another scene. The cats in these background shots appears to be a long-haired black cat.
Kitty Cameo: A short-haired cat is suddenly inside the house sitting on the arm of a loveseat as Rose’s husband (Edward Chapman) sits down. He pushes the cat off the arm of the chair.
Final Mewsings: Cats don’t like being pushed aside or stuck in the background.
