Cat People, the classic 1942 Jacques Tourneur human-feline romantic horror thriller ("She was one of the dreaded 'Cat People' -- doomed to slink and prowl and court by night... fearing always that a lover's kiss might change her into a snarling, clawing Killer!"; "She was marked with the curse of those who slink and court and kill by night!"; "A kiss could change her into a monstrous fang-and-claw killer!"; "To kiss her meant death by her own fangs and claws!"; "Beautiful, warm, glamorous by day, she dared not love - for her kisses might change to snarls, her embraces to the death grips of the awful 'Cat People' who stalk and strike by night! ... The Strangest Story You Ever Tried To Get Out Of Your Dreams!"; "Written by DeWitt Bodeen"; produced by Val Lewton) starring Simone Simon, Kent Smith, Tom Conway, Jane Randolph, Jack Holt, and Mary Halsey. Note that when this movie was first announced by RKO Pictures in 1942, it was called "The Cat People" in the first trade ads, but it was released simply as "Cat People".

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that the color inset image on this paper banner (see our image) was printed on a separate sheet and then attached to that area of the banner (this was commonly done with paper banners, and some 30x40s and 40x60s of this period). This is how the poster was created.

Condition: fair to good. There are many scuffs and stains scattered throughout the poster, but fortunately not as many in the photographic image. There are tears and small paper loss in the middle left of the photographic image and a tear and small paper loss in the left border next to that. There is a 4" tear in the right border (see our image).
