This mostly unrelated sequel to Cat People (1942) has Amy, the young daughter of Oliver and Alice Reed. Amy is a very imaginative child who has trouble differentiating fantasy from reality, and has no friends her own age as a result. She makes an imaginary friend though, her father's dead first wife Irena. At about the same time, she befriends Julia Farren, an aging reclusive actress who is alienated from her own daughter Barbara. Written by

Miss Callahan, Amy's teacher, refers to a book, The Inner World of Childhood, written by American psychologist Frances Wickes and published in 1927. See more »
In the Reeds' house, there is a small side table with two figurines and a vase near the closet where the coats are kept. This table varies from having a backboard on it (when the carolers some to the house) to lacking one (when Oliver takes Amy outside to look for Irena and later when Amy flees the house). See more »
Possibly the most irrelevantly (and misleadingly) titled movie ever. People are going to expect an old horror movie, spend the whole time waiting for a panther attack, and be disappointed. I'd say if you're going to show this to a friend, fast forward past the title and pretend it's called something else. Actually, don't bother with a friend. This is a film that you can only really enjoy alone. It brings back half-remembered feelings of early childhood, things you can't even put into grown-up words or ways of thinking. Viewing it with another cynical adult might break the film's fragile little spell.
