The Cat Creeps (1930) is a crime/mystery film, and a sound remake of The Cat and the Canary (1927). It is one of the many lost films of the early talkie film era.[citation needed]


A Spanish-language version titled La Voluntad del Muerto, starring Lupita Tovar and directed by George Melford, was filmed by Universal Pictures at night on the same sets used for The Cat Creeps during the day.

In the documentary The Young and the Dead, the lead actress' husband is shown creating a video tribute to her due to her illness and shows part of her memorial service. He states that he became her agent during the filming of the movie and married her shortly after filming ended.

Preservation statusEdit

No prints or negatives of The Cat Creeps are known to exist, only some stills and the soundtrack. A few clips do survive in a short film produced by Universal entitled Boo! (1932).[1]
