The Cat's Meow (2001) DVD9
It’s 1924 and wealthy media mogul William Randolph Hearst – WR to his friends – (Edward Hermann) opens his handsome cruising yacht to a handful of guests to celebrate the birthday of film producer Thomas Ince (Cary Elwes), who is trying to get Hearst to back him in a big way. Charlie Chaplin (Eddie Izzard) uses the occasion to try and prise WR’s mistress, the adorable actress Marion Davies (Kirsten Dunst) away from Hearst. But he’s not the only one on board with a secret agenda; other guests include society novelist Elinor Glynn (Joanna Lumley), New York based gossip columnist Louella Parsons (Jennifer Tilly) and actress Margaret Livingston (Claudia Harrison) who is the secret mistress of the married Ince. By the end of the trip, one person will be dead and a couple of relationships shattered. Inspired by real events that have never been fully explained.
