Robert Mitchum stars as Curt Bridges, one of three sons born to stern matriarch Ma Bridges (Beulah Bondi) and her weak, alcoholic husband (Philip Tonge). With the ranch's cattle falling prey to the elusive killer cat Bridges and his two brothers, Arthur (William Hopper) and Harold (Tab Hunter), are forced to confront the beast to save the family herd. Teresa Wright is their bitter, unmarried sister, and Diana Lynn is the young neighbour who sets tensions – and passions aflame amidst the family's mounting crisis.

A Winter's Tale - Track of the Cat review by TE

Spoiler Alert

It's cold and snowy outside but inside the house it's all super-heated tension and bitterness.

This is a tale of elemental forces and symbolic parallels between wild nature and family strife. Mitchum and a very good cast give their all in the services of sheer melodrama.

It's an interesting artefact, but the final message is dated: women need to be dominated and men need to be macho.

No explanation is offered as to why everyone hates each other quite so much, but it's well worth a watch.
