  • The Leopard Man 1943

    ★★★½ Watched 24 Oct, 2014

    The boyfriend of a nightclub artiste hires a black leopard as publicity for his girlfriend. Unfortunately the leopard escapes and savages a young woman to death, and then more women are found dead, but it seems that the leopard may not be to blame for all the deaths.

A lovely 1940s horror film that helps remind us of how difficult it was to learn about the human body in the past.
