The Black Cat is a 1934 horror film that became Universal Pictures' biggest box office hit of the year. The picture was the first of eight movies (six of which were produced by Universal) to pair actors Béla Lugosi and Boris Karloff. Edgar G. Ulmer directed the film, which was also notable for being one of the first movies with an almost continuous music score. Lugosi also appears in a 1941 film with the same title.

Famous quotes containing the words cat and/or black:

    “A cat may look at a king,” said Alice. “I’ve read that in some book, but I don’t remember where.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    ... the black woman can never forget—however lukewarm the party may to-day appear—that it was a Republican president who struck the manacles from her own wrists and gave the possibilities of manhood to her helpless little ones; and to her mind the Democratic Negro is a traitor and a time-server.
    Anna Julia Cooper (1859–1964)
