Author of the book "Thomasina" Paul Gallico was present on the set during filming by special invitation. As Gallico quickly came to dislike "the great god Disney", he was vastly amused when one of the felines portraying Thomasina held up filming for two days when she flatly refused to perform a stunt for which she had been trained, in spite of Walt Disney's frustrated bellowing. Paul Gallico recalled in his memoirs: "I was proud of that cat!" As with many films with animals, more than one cat was used to portray Thomasina. Disney put a foreword on the film (DVD special features) and indicated 'Paul Gallico' was his friend. See more »

I saw this movie around 1965 and remember it very well. It is interesting to watch it now and realize my feelings about it are the same as 40 years ago. It is amazing how Disney made a movie that both children and adults can appreciate. It is a movie the whole family can watch.
It is not perfect but is definitely a great movie. I have the VHS version and have seen it available in DVD which I will buy soon. Patrick McGoohan plays his role so convincingly. I am always captivated by Susan Hampshire. The children are also fantastic. They all seem like real people and not actors which makes this movie work. Of course I am very sentimental about the movie and that may cloud my judgment but I do not care! I love this movie!
