Reviews of Lady and the Tramp (1955) and related work
- Spin-off: One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)
Lady and the Tramp (1955) – previously
Better with the original voices; I did not like the Swedish dub. I especially appreciate the attempt, however flawed, to portray a city of ethnic diversity as a good thing, and giving up on the glamorization of poverty as a lifestyle choice.
‣ One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)
Seen in 2019.
A study in predictability. Cruella’s extreme simplicity as a figure of evil sucks the life out of the film. It’s visual style is flat to match, extending the use of xerography to distraction.
