Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

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.
