And the Next Day 147 People were Hit by Buses

Thanks to Google for this wonderful photo archive from LIFE magazine, 1961:

 Hollywood Audition for a Black Cat


There isn’t any text available in the archive but it’s fairly obvious that this was some sort of publicity stunt staged by the producers of the 1962 Roger Corman Horror trilogy Tales of Terror (one of the tales is Poe’s The Black Cat). You have to admire the gumption of the lady who brought a white cat to the audition. It’s great that they were able to rope the film’s stars Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, and Joyce Jameson into the event.
