Silent Film Sunday-The Cat and The Canary 1927



A silent horror film classic from 1927 about a wealthy millionaire, Cyrus West, who dies after being driven mad by his greedy relatives, the cats around the canary.  Twenty years after his death the relatives come to West's house for the reading of his will, and find more then money waiting for them.
 
 
This well restored silent film is available for free on Netflix streaming and Amazon Prime.  I particularly love the lettering on the title cards in this film.
