Double Leopard-y

A poor child met big game, it was chilling!
Is the wild cat to blame for this killing?
Or has Jack-off the Ripper
Dressed in black, with no zipper
And, thus styled, quite untamed, gone blood-spilling?

Dr. Galbraith (James Bell) and Kiki (Jean Brooks).in The Leopard Man (Jacques Tourneur; 1943). Apparently the same black leopard (named "Dynamite") used in Cat People, another Val Lewton production, was brought back for this film.
