Perri, An undiscovered treasure from the Golden age of Disney
15 March 2000 | by drdolittle7See all my reviews

Having collecting older 16mm movie films, i have recently come across an old forgotten Disney film called "Perri". having heard of it in my childhood , i was courious and asked to borrow it , to my surprise i was very impressed with it. this is truly a forgotten treasure of a film,it brings back the old glory days when disney was king. it is similar in part to walt disney "bambi", but still very impressive. unfortunately to my knowldege this film is not on video, and will thus largely remain unknown or forgotten.
