The ‘cat man’ from Logan’s Run

This is a clip of one of my favourite eccentric characters in a film. (Logan’s Run 1976)  Peter Ustinov plays an old man who lives in what appears to be an old derelict court-house, with dozens of cats.  In this dystopian future world young people from a nearby closed city society have a very limited lifespan so the couple have never seen an old man with wrinkled skin before.  They also have no pets in their society so have never seen cats.  In telling them about his cats the old man mixes in quotes from T S Elliot’s Old Possum’s Book Of Practical Cats.
