    From director Peter Bogdanovich comes The Cat`s Meow, an extraordinary look at a fateful excursion of "fun and frolic" aboard William Randolph Hearst`s private yacht in November 1924 that brought together some of the century`s best-known personalities and resulted in a still-unsolved, hushed-up killing. As Hearst (Edward Herrmann) and his lover, actress Marion Davies (Kirsten Dunst), set sail from San Pedro Harbour early one Saturday morning, hosting a small group that includes the brilliant but self-absorbed Charlie Chaplin (Eddie Izzard), film pioneer Thomas Ince (Cary Elwes), ambitious gossip columnist Louella Parsons (Jennifer Tilly) and the eccentric British Victorian novelist Elinor Glyn (Joanna Lumley), it quickly becomes clear that although witty repartee is the order of the day, deceit and deception are also on the menu...
