Jane ("Cat People") Randolph Dies

Adam Bernstein

Actress Jane Randolph, who died May 4 at 93, will be remembered for two of the scariest single scenes in any suspense film -- and they are the same film, "Cat People" (1942). She's stalked by a female/feline rival in the first scene as she walked by night to a bus stop, and she's terrorized in a lonely and shadowy pool in the second.

This great Italian-dubbed clip has it all, and the language barrier is negligible:

Willowy and with a striking angular beauty, Randolph was never a front-ranked star and eventually left Hollywood when she married a wealthy land developer. The Post will have its obit soon.
