Straight from the Retronaut: Black Cat Auditions in Hollywood from 1961

Retronaut is a website dedicated to archiving weird, wonderful and historic photographs from the last 200 years. Amongst this vast collection you can expect to see photos of London from 1913, raunchy fashion shoots from the 1920’s, futuristic designs from 1962 and everything you could possibly imagine in between. This week we have dug through the archives and found some rather cute black cat auditions in Hollywood from 1961.
