Our Score
All the pieces slot together with ease in this lively, if overlong, Disney caper. Yet, while it makes efficient entertainment, the film is not as much fun as it should be, bearing in mind its exceptional cast. The cat steals the show by a whisker from nosey neighbours William Demarest and Elsa Lanchester, and Hayley Mills is perky enough as the cat's owner. But all roles are dull compared with those of Dean Jones as the FBI agent with a cat allergy and Roddy McDowall as a drip whose ducks are the frisky feline's favourite playmates.


A canny Siamese cat with a nose for trouble picks up a decidedly fishy clue to a bank robbery. Luckily, the crime-busting feline manages to let her owners know what is going on - leading them to team up with the FBI to foil the crime. Disney comedy, starring Hayley Mills, Dean Jones, Roddy McDowall, Elsa Lanchester, Frank Gorshin and Dorothy Provine.
