VINTAGE FILM Cat Ballou

Cat Ballou

The Farrelly Brothers have called Cat Ballou their favorite film, and it’s not just because there’s something about Jane Fonda (it was actually Lee Marvin, playing two roles, who won all the trophies from L.A. to Berlin). The original spoof of the Western genre, Cat also features Nat King Cole’s final screen appearance.
