Audience Reviews for The Cat and the Canary

  • Dec 11, 2011
    Long on my list of films to see, this was quaint and enjoyable. Hope brings a disarming sense of cowardice to his role while maintaining full likability of his character. Goddard is simply lovely.

    Hope throws some life into this remake.
