Lady and the Tramp
Directed by Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson and Hamilton Luske
Running time: 75 minutes
Released in 1955, Lady and the Tramp is the 15th film in Walt Disney's Animated Classics series and the first feature film to use the CinemaScope widescreen process. A nostalgic and romantic film, its a love story between two dogs, Lady, a pampered American cocker spaniel and Tramp, a male stray mutt from the wrong part of town. While Lady lives in a smart house with her refined, upper-class owners, Jim Dear and Darling, Tramp lives on scraps from Tony's, the neighbourhood Italian restaurant, and protects his friends from the ever-present dog-catcher. However, when Lady's owners start a family, Lady begins to feel rejected. Her isolation is heightened when the dislikable Aunt Sarah comes to stay, bringing with her two Siamese cats who wreak havoc and blame the dog. Lady escapes, running into tramp along the way and the adventures and romance begins. With its excellent special effects and rousing music co-written and performed by Peggy Lee, Lady and the Tramp is a much-loved animation classic.
