Did You Know?


Walt Disney read Ward Greene's story, "Happy Dan, the Whistling Dog" in Cosmopolitan magazine in 1943 and eventually hired Greene to include the Dan character in the film during the pre-production stage. But Greene wrote and published an entirely new story "Lady and the Tramp; the Story of Two Dogs," which became the source of the film. See more »


The beaver exclaims, "Listen, listen sonny, you realize every second, seventy centimeters of water is wasted over that spillway?" Water is supposed to be measured in volume, not length, so it would be more technically accurate to have used "cubic centimeters" in place of "centimeters". However, for very casual estimates, the Beaver may have meant that the stream moved seventy centimeters downstream each second, regardless of the depth at any point, or the width of the hole being plugged.

Jim Dear: [Giving Darling a hatbox] It's for you, Darling. Merry Christmas.
Darling: Oh, Jim, dear. It's the one I was admiring, isn't it? Trimmed with ribbons?
Jim Dear: Well, it *has* a ribbon.
[the box is opened; inside is a puppy wearing a ribbon]
Darling: Oh, how sweet.
Jim Dear: You like her, Darling?
Darling: [hugging the puppy] Oh, I love her. What a perfectly beautiful little Lady.

If this film isn't a classic, I don't know what is! This is a great story about two dogs who fall in love, although they're from different sides of the railroad tracks, so to speak. These dogs act more human than many humans do. It's heartwarming, humorous and just plain clean family entertainment! This is a film that has stood the test of time and passed with flying colors. This is one to BUY and keep! So what are you waiting for? Go buy it!
