  • Underrated Tourneurr/Lewton

    I know this is the least liked of the Tourneur trilogy for Val Lewton but give it a chance. A brief running time means things move at a quick pace. Btw-the title refers to the man who actually owns the Leopard-that's what he calls himself as he travels from town to town showing it. Also could refer to the killer so like the suspect who might have a split personality we also get two possible meanings for "The Leopard Man." The journey of the unfortunate girl looking for cornmeal is a typical "journey of fear" featured in all the Tourneur horrors-The swimming pool sequence in The Cat People, the Canefield walk in I Walked With a Zombie, and Dana Andrews' walk in the woods in Night/Curse of the Demon. Someone else mentioned Margo as the fortune-teller, this in incorrect, Isabell Jewell is the card reader who keeps trying to give Clo-Clo good news but the cards always show the same result. Interesting that the heroine also has a double name Ki-Ki-more of that double or split personality meaning? Anyway, give it another chance.

    Second tier Val Lewton production. Not a bad film, but the mystery is not very riveting and the acting is a bit dull. The visuals are great however. The scenes are beautiful, frightening, evocative. Lewton somehow captures that sense of being alone on a path with some namely horror that may or may not be stalking you as well as any filmmaker has ever done. But the movie as a whole is just okay. Worth seeing if you are a film buff, or Val Lewton fan.

  • A little eerie!

    Not a bad film but not top notch either. Has a rather interesting mystery centering on a panther but, if you love old horror flicks, you know the panther will turn out to not be the killer. I found the most interesting thing about this film to be the performance by the lovely Margo. (It's no wonder she kept but one name as her real name was eight names long!) She was a surprisingly good actress and I did like her very much here, as the performance as a fortune-teller suited her. She was married to Eddie Albert for 40 years and is the mother of the actor Edward Albert who I especially loved in "Butterflies Are Free." Val Lewton films are a bit off kilter at the best of times and this one is as well.
