Cat People (1942) and I Walked with a Zombie (1943) established Val Lewtons hauntingly graceful style where suggestion was often used in place of explicit violence. His stylish B thrillers were imitated by a generation of filmmakers such as Richard Wallace, William Castle, and even Walt Disney in his animated Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949). Through interviews with many of Lewtons associates (including his wife and son) and extensive research, his life and output are thoroughly examined.
