The Cat’s Meow (2001) short review

Not all I wanted it to be, but cute and visually interesting nonetheless.  Media mogul William Randolph Hearst invites a bunch of Hollywood people, including girlfriend/starlet Marion Davies (Kirsten Dunst) and Charlie Chaplin, onto his yacht for a weekend.  Someone gets murdered, and things start to unravel. Nice 1920s costumes.
