Hollywood Audition for Black Cats


Those who are superstitious might veer away from these photos of a Hollywood callout for black cats but we can’t resist the furry felines! Lucky for us LIFE was able to archive these exquisite black and white photos by Ralph Crane from 1961.

Old or young, billionnaire or bourgeoisie, men or women… All sorts of cat people flocked to this 1961 Hollywood audition for dark-haired felines. Actor Vincent Price’s appearance suggests that this was for the movie Tales of Terror (1962) by Roger Corman. How sweet are these photographs by Ralph Crane?
