Cat Out of the Bag Alert!  This review contains some spoilers for this film!

Synopsis: Actor Jack Noah (Richard Dreyfuss) is shooting a film in the country of Parador and finds himself in the strange position of having to substitute for President Alphonse Simms (also played by Dreyfuss) when the man unexpectedly dies.

Purr Blur: In one scene Simms’ assistant Roberto (Raul Julia) is in the back of a limousine when the man keels over. The limo pulls up to the back of a club and they struggle to carry the lifeless man inside. As they enter a back door, a barely visible calico cat runs out.
