Starring: Boris Karloff, Marian Marsh
Directed by: R. William Neill
Synopsis: Twin brothers Gregor and Anton de Berghman (both played by Boris Karloff) are born under a family prophesy which says the younger brother will kill the older in a mysterious black room which is sealed to keep the prediction from coming true.
Cat Burglar (Scene Stealer): A short time into the film we see an inn or pub which has a black cat sign out front. Inside a black cat is sitting on a table with a group of men.
The cat is extremely calm throughout the scene as one of the men pets him or her.
Even when Anton enters with a Great Dane named Thor the cat seems curious but nonplussed.
The cat continues to sit, often with its eyes closed, as the men talk about the new arrival.
Final Mewsings: This may have been the very first cat café!
Many thanks to Ted Davis for spotting this calm kitty for us!
