Black Cat Casting Call

Okay, this photo is an instant favorite. In 1961, black cat owners lined up at a Hollywood casting call for a thriller directed by Roger Corman, and starring Vincent Price. The director sought one lucky black cat to co-star, and six lookalikes to stand in.

Also interesting that the owners all appear to be women. :)

Today's ichcb has all black cats:

What an interesting tidbit! I wonder if the cats liked anything about what they were doing with the movie. What an adventure for them.

Check out my blog about a colony of abandoned/feral cats near my home. There will be stories there as time goes on that could inspire and inform anyone you know who wants to help homeless cats.
Would you add me to your blog list?
