Goofs

As Aristotle Bolt flies alongside the airborne RV, he looks at Tony and Tia from the left side window of the helicopter. Later, when he realizes he's flying upside-down alongside them, he is watching from the same position. With the helicopter flying upside-down, Bolt should have been on the other side, and unable to see the RV. See more »

Jason O'Day: Um, look. Um, if you don't mind, I'd like to plan on remembering you two as if you were my kids. The kids I never had.

Alexander Key's Magic Mountain
1 November 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

After their foster parents die, telepathic Kim Richards (as Tia Malone) and telekinetic Ike Eisenmann (as Tony Malone) must return to living in an orphanage. On an outing with ever-delightful Reta Shaw (in her last film role), the siblings' otherworldly powers are discovered, by Donald Pleasence (as Lucas Deranian), the devious driver for dastardly millionaire Ray Milland (as Aristotle Bolt). With help from heart-warmed Eddie Albert (as Jason O'Day), the children must escape from Mr. Milland, who has nefarious plans…

The usual Disney clichés - cute kids, lovable animals, old pros - but significantly better than what had, by the time this film was originally released, become the norm at the studio: mediocre to poor kid fare. Children deserve quality. "Escape to Witch Mountain" is more imaginative than insulting; and, as you'll see, it could arguably be called ahead of its time. The players and animals are nicely corralled by director John Hough; "Winkie" is the cat's meow, and the instrumental puppet dance is quite memorable.

******* Escape to Witch Mountain (3/21/75) John Hough ~ Ike Eisenmann, Kim Richards, Eddie Albert, Ray Milland
