Movie Diary 9/25/2014

The Cat Burglar (William Witney, 1961). The burglar (Jack Hogan) inadvertently ends up with secret atomic papers much coveted by Commies, who are large men in dark suits. A blonde (June Kenney – you will recall her from Attack of the Puppet People), made up to look a lot like Janet Leigh in Psycho, is also in the mix. Witney gets some good-looking  set-ups, although the acting is pretty awful. Jazz score by Buddy Bregman. The plain quality of the motel rooms and parking lots makes you think the plot is about to bump into the filming of a Herschell Gordon Lewis picture.
