Fav Films of the 50’s ~ #10 ~ Lady & the Tramp

06 Mar

The fifteenth animated feature in the Disney animated features canon, it was the first animated feature filmed in the Cinemascope widescreen film process. The story pairs a female Cocker Spaniel named Lady who lives with a rich family and a male mutt named Tramp who lives on the streets. Once the two of them meet, they share an adventure together and eventually fall in love.

To this day, Lady and the Tramp is still one of my favorite Disney films. The story, and the cast of animal charecters , my favorite featuring the voice of the great Peggy Lee (who was an Oscar nominated Best Supporting Actress in 1956) as Peg, a broken-down old showgirl of a dog, whose provocative walk was based on the stage-prowl of Peggy Lee. Later she sued Disney and won a landmark legal judgment for a portion of the profits from the videocassette sale of the film.
