CAT OF THE DAY 011: ENTER THE DRAGON (1973)
Every evil crimelord should have a Torture Museum. Han (Kien Shih) shows Roper (John Saxon) around his, and invites his guest to place his head on the guillotine. When Roper, understandably, declines, Han places his own white cat there, and babbles the usual supervillain nonsense: “Very few people can be totally ruthless. It isn’t easy. It takes more strength than you might believe.”
Roper, being one of the good guys, picks the cat up off the block, at which it shows its gratitude by biting him and scampering off. Han observes, “Then there is a point you will not go beyond.” What, the point of gratuitous execution of innocent animals? More supervillain nonsense, of course. Hitler probably wouldn’t have let that cat die either.
This is a particularly interesting cat; it starts off like a typical WHITE CAT OF EVIL before threatening to turn into a CATRIFICE, but then shows a mean streak of CATZILLA before finally settling down into a CATAPHOR.
It also looks as though it’s been at the milk.
