Wild Cat
14 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Doug McClure stars as Dan Hollis, who returns to his rodeo-riding life with his new wife Mariah in tow. This alarms both his ex-flame(played by the radiant Mariette Hartley) and good friend "Dumpy Doyle", the rodeo clown(played by Jackie Coooper). It turns out that Doyle was once involved with Mariah's mother, and in fact had to kill her because she was a shape-shifter, being able to turn into a big cat, and when recent killings of animals seems to be the result of a big cat, becomes convinced that Mariah is just like her late mother... Predictable episode owes quite a bit to the earlier film "Cat People"(1942), though is nowhere near as stylish or interesting. Not bad really, but inconsequential.
