Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book is given the full treatment in this lavish retelling filled with huge sets, exotic animals, a large cast and the incomparable Sabu, starring as Mowgli, the young orphan boy raised by wolves. Curious to reconnect with his human village, Mowgli returns only to find disappointment in the greed and treachery of man. Over time, Mowgli and the village members do grow to trust one another, but not before the village finds itself under siege. It's up to Mowgli and his jungle friends to save the day.
Directed by Zoltan Korda, this version was (and still is) considered by most film historians to be the most faithful and definitive interpretation of this classic story.
This is a DVD packaged in a slim plastic DVD case.
Bettter than original

"This has always been a excellent movie. The insertion of the wild animal shots was seamless. Sabu was very good. The remastering especially the colorization was great. It is clean with a low key color that gives it the feel of an old movie with the quality detail of a new one. I have already watched it twice. It is the best of the Jungle Book movies."

"I already owned the VHS version of this film and expected the DVD to be of equal or better quality. I was wrong. The picture was blurred; the color was worse; and the sound was constantly adjusting up and down.
There was a long period of blackness; then, the movie suddenly arrived. My first thought was, "This is horrible!" The sound was garbled and the picture was so dark and blurred.
How sad that this film was not properly restored, before someone made a bad copy for DVD. What does 'Digitally Remastered' mean...Make a bad copy of a good, old film?"

"The Jungle Book is a wonderful movie, in beautiful technicolor, that deserves a much better presentation than this DVD.
The movie is so bright that one can barely see that it is in color and barely tell what is happening in the movie. I was able to make it watchable by drastically changing the brightness and color controls on my TV, and then it had nowhere near the color and clarity that I had seen when the movie played recently on TCM.
If you are not comfortable changing these controls, don't buy this version of the movie.
This movie deserves a much better treatment."
