The Cat's Meow

cover"The Cat's Meow" is a very nice little movie. Based on a murder that took place in the 1920's on William Randolph Hearst's yacht. WR throws a party for a filmmaker, Thomas Ince, for his birthday. At the party are various characters from the 20's, a columnist, a novelist, and Charlie Chaplin amongst others as well as Marion Davies, WR's mistress, who WR suspects of being unfaithful to him. The story's great and interesting, based on rumors, as there are few facts actually known about the murder. The music and costumes are just gorgeous and slip you easily into the 20's. But best of all is the acting, particularly Kirsten Dunst as Marion and Eddie Izzard as Charlie. Go see it, you won't regret it.
