Cat and the Canary

1939

Elliott Nugent
Director

Production Company

Assorted family members gather for the reading of a will in a desolate mansion in the bayou.

Possibly Bob Hope's best film. Perfect mixture of Hope cowardice and old dark house spooks. Absolutely must have influenced Scooby-Doo.
