5 out of 5

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.

Plot Summary

Classic Disney animated musical adventure. Lady is a cosseted cocker spaniel who lives in the nicest part of town with doting couple Jim Dear and Darling. Tramp is a rough-and-ready mongrel who enjoys a carefree existence on the streets. But when Lady's pampered life is turned upside down, she finds out about life on the other side of the tracks.
