Cyrus West's relatives have waited 20 years for a reading of his will, and are shocked to learn that Annabelle West, the only remaining heir with his name, inherits everything unless she's proven to be insane. Before anymore can be read, the lawyer disappears! The Cat and the Canary was based on the popular play of the same name and is considered the starting point of Hollywood's infatuation with "old dark house" mysteries. Laura La Plante plays Annabelle, and as the sinister events unfold, even you will be wondering if she's unstable! (BW)
