Our Score
The only original feature-film storyline devised by Disney in the 1950s, this was the studio's first venture into CinemaScope and remains one of its most enduring favourites. Ending a sequence of fairy-tale adaptations, it returned to the animal world of Dumbo and Bambi to create a cast of charming creatures, headed by a pampered cocker spaniel called Lady and a spaghetti-munching mongrel called Tramp. In addition to voicing Lady's mistress and Siamese cats Si and Am, Peggy Lee also co-composed the unforgettable songs (with Sonny Burke), which were mystifyingly overlooked by Oscar. A joy for children and romantics alike.

Summary

A pet cocker spaniel fears her owners will reject her when they become parents, and the arrival of two villainous siamese cats in the house leaves her feeling more unwelcome. Driven from her home, she encounters a roguish stray mongrel, who introduces her to his carefree life on the streets. Disney animated adventure, with the voices of Barbara Luddy, Larry Roberts and Peggy Lee.
