Reviews
Mine: I liked this when I saw it as a kid. I think that it's appeal is limited to kids. Overly long.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Robert Surtees' photography is great, and that's it for this colossal musical dud that almost ruined 20th Century-Fox studios. The charm of Hugh Lofting's stories is gone. One merit: if you have unruly children, it may put them to sleep. Songs by Leslie Bricusse (including the Oscar-winning ``Talk to the Animals'') and choreography by Herbert Ross. Oscar winner for special visual effects. Originally 152m. Remade in 1998. Todd-AO.
