78 minutes · 1967

Adventure, Animation
A deflated Disney version of the Kipling children's stories, made during a time (1967) when the studio was spending as little money as possible on its animation division. A good deal of the footage here has actually been traced from earlier shorts and features, and—as increasingly became the Disney habit—celebrity voices are used as a way of shortcutting the characterization that was once created through gestures and rhythms. A serious disappointment, recommended only for inveterate Disney fans and very young people.

35mm. Sat 10/21, 7 and 9 PM, and Sun 10/22, 4 PM.
