It's still one of the sweetest kisses onscreen, up there with Bergman and Grant, Bogey and Bacall: the moment when pampered purebred Lady and streetwise mongrel Tramp, sharing a moonlit plate of spaghetti in an alley behind an Italian café, unknowingly … see full wiki
Walt Disney's "Lady And The Tramp" was never one of my personal favorite films as a child. I'm all grown up now, and it has become a very enjoyable treat for me and my entire family. For those unfamiliar with the story, here's a brief explanation: Cocker Spaniel Lady has a perfect life until a baby shows up. She begins to feel neglected and when her owners take a little vacation and leave her and the baby with Aunt Sarah, she winds up on the mean streets alone....until Tramp shows up. He defends her, has a romantic dinner with her and eventually finds his way into her heart. It's all executed with Disney's classic perfection and littered with wonderful songs like "Bella Notte" and "We Are Siamese."
What really makes this film worth five stars is the treatment it receives in this platinum edition. The digital restoration looks and sounds great. The extras are some of the best I've ever seen, especially the "Backstage Disney" features that give animation fans a wonderful look at the development of the film.
If you're a fan of animation, this DVD is a must. The special features alone are worth the purchase price. Fans of light romance, family films and dogs will also love this classic Disney tale. Highly recommended.
