When William Randolph Hearst sets off early one Saturday morning in November on his floating mansion for a weekend of hedonistic fun and frolics, he is joined by some of 1920s America's glittering people, amongst them Charlie Chaplin. The consequences of this trip result in a murder that even today remains shrouded in mystery. The Cat's Meow is a beautifully realised film, with a fine cast and something of a return to form for Bogdanovich, but it's flaw hangs upon the true story it is attempting to represent, a tale with more questions than answers. A sophisticated and absorbing mystery...just a wee bit frustrating.
