    His early work with producer Val Lewton is also pretty solid – The Body Snatcher (1945) especially, but I enjoy Curse of the Cat People (1944) as well, even though it’s not quite as evocative as Jacques Tourneur’s original Cat People (1942). And for noir, 1947’s Born to Kill is excellent and underseen.
