Director: Don Chaffey
Writer: Robert Westerby
From novel: Thomasina: The Enchanted Cat by Paul Gallico
Review by anonymous (posted on 30-Jun-2006)
Those of us who grew
up with the Wonderful World of Disney's terrific Sunday night movies
will remember this magical film for its likable cast (two of the main
child actors also portrayed Jane and Michael Banks in Mary Poppins),
gorgeous Scottish Highlands scenery, and heartwarming plot that unfolds
for us through the narration of the title character, Thomasina the cat.
Mary McDhui finds her pet near death and rushes him to her father, the
village vet, but he's busy, brushes her off, and tells his assistant to
put the cat out of its misery, he cannot save it. Of course, the story
does not end there; in fact, it's just getting started. There's a
beautiful "witch" in the glen, a child's broken heart, a widowed
father's stoic front that masks his own sadness, and delightful,
colorful characters throughout. Like me, you'll want to own this one
and watch it with your children.
Do you know something we don't?
