Hollywood Reporter on CAT DANCERS: “Given the sensational nature of the subject, the film was bound to be riveting. But it happens also to be skillfully executed by director Harris Fishman … it tantalizes long after the lights come on.”
Seven years in the making. A hit at the SXSW and Los Angeles film festivals. Filmmaker Harris Fishman draws upon a treasure trove of archival footage to tell the incredible story of Ron and Joy Holiday, a show business couple who mixed magic with dangerous animals. The Holidays created their own Eden at the Cat Dancers ranch in Florida, joined by a young trainer Chuck Lizza, who completed this unusual family. Together they flouted conventional behavior on and off the stage, with many surprising turns of fate.
