After years and years of observed behavior that absolutely defied all feline logic, I always had a sneaking suspicion that my dear old cat wasn’t a cat at all but some kind of shape-shifting alien who happened to gene-lock on the first assimilated creature it came into contact with. Either that or some kind of badger-skunk-water-rat hybrid of a Moreau-nian nature. Regardless of origin, over those same years she grew very, very dear to me. And after fifteen years of co-habitation, I lost my boon companion due to mounting medical woes. And I still miss her. I still miss her a lot.

‎”No Heaven will not ever Heaven be.
Unless my cats are there to welcome me.”

After inspiring the screenplay for James Cagney’s White Heat (1949), for her next project, screenwriter Virginia Kellogg clandestinely arranged for herself to be incarcerated for a spell to help expose the true dirt on life inside a women’s penitentiary, which served as a blueprint for our feature, Caged, ushering in the era of Women in Prison flicks that we all know and love today.

Caged (1950) Warner Bros. / P: Jerry Wald / D: John Cromwell / W: Virginia Kellogg, Bernard Schoenfeld / C: Carl Guthrie / E: Owen Marks / M: Max Steiner / S: Eleanor Parker, Hope Emerson, Agnes Moorehead, Ellen Corby, Jan Sterling, Betty Garde
