    Release Date:

    From award-winning screenwriter Steven Peros and acclaimed director Peter Bogdanovich comes The Cat`s Meow, an extraordinary look at a fateful excursion of "fun and frolic" aboard William Randolph Hearst`s private yacht in November 1924 that brought together some of the century`s best-known personalities and resulted in a still-unsolved, hushed-up killing. As Hearst and his lover, actress Marion Davies, set sail from San Pedro Harbor early one Saturday morning, hosting a small group that includes the brilliant but self-absorbed Charlie Chaplin, film pioneer Thomas Ince, ambitious novelist Elinor Glyn, it quickly becomes clear that although witty repartee is the order of the day, deceit and deception are also on the menu.
