I've been watching for years, hoping that would come out, and yet somehow it has, right under my nose! I was at Best Buy tonight, browsing titles, when quite to my surprise I came across this treasured bit of Disneyana for the mere price of $12!!!
Have to say, I frickin' love that film. Not just the charming cheesiness of it, or the warm nostalgia of Burl Ives, not even just the gratuitous insect footage-laden musical sequence. It's also a heartwarming story well-directed. And some of it just totally cracks me up, particularly Disney's answer to "The Rules", a lovely little ditty called "Femininity". You just can't go wrong with a song bearing lines like, "Let him do the talking... men adore good listeners" and "HIDE the real you!"
If you haven't seen this Hayley Mills classic, I suggest you try... no excuses now that it's out on DVD!
