The Aristocats ★★★ 1970

Typically entertaining Disney animated story about pampered pussy Duchess (Gabor) and her three kittens, who are left a fortune in their mistress' will. The fortune goes to the butler if the cats don't survive, so he dumps them in the country hoping they won't find their way home. The cats are aided by tough alley denizen O'Malley (Harris)—it's kind of the feline version of “Lady and the Tramp.” Maurice Chevalier sings the title tune. 78m/C VHS, DVD. D: Wolfgang Reitherman; M: George Bruns; V: Eva Gabor, Phil Harris, Sterling Holloway, Roddy Maude-Roxby, Bill Thompson, Hermione Baddeley, Carol(e) Shelley, Pat Buttram, Nancy Kulp, Paul Winchell.
