Could have been better
4 October 2003 | by IMOviesSee all my reviews

FAT BLACK PUSSYCAT, THE (1963) *1/2 (D: Harold Lea) A killer on the loose flick that is not as god as it could have been because of different endings and other edits. The leading lady is very attractive and I enjoyed the Sixties Greenwich Village scenes more than anything else. After spending much time getting involved with the hero detective, his fate in this new ending proves unsatisfactory before the climax.
