The Cat's Meow

Director Peter Bogdonovich (The Last Picture Show, Paper Moon) climbs back on that horse after an unremarkable string of TV movies. This time around, he's turned his attention to 1920s Hollywood and a much-debated bit of movie history. In 1924, a mysterious death took place aboard the yacht of media mogul William Randolph Hearst. In attendance were Charlie Chaplin, Marion Davies and Louella Parsons (among others). Bodonovich's jazzy period romp speculates on murder, conspiracy and other dark Tinseltown secrets. The strong cast includes Kirsten Dunst, Eddie Izzard, Cary Elwes and Jennifer Tilly. 110 minutes
