This is an excellent movie.The actors are superb, including DC, William Demarest is in this movie (uncle Charlie from my 3 Sons). His wife in this movie is MRS Super Nosy. She watches the whole neighborhood. He calls the police and tells them an old man in women's clothes is in the alley behind his house. The police pick up his wife and tell her she has an ugly face for a woman. The police bring her home the next morning and She is furious.William Demaresy runs for the back alley and on before his wife finds him.This is a clean, fun Family comedy. The DVD picture and sound is fantastic.

Still waiting............

"As of today, May 2, 2004, Disney's masterpiece, the original "That Darn Cat" has yet to be released on DVD.
I dont know what Disney is waiting for, but if enough of us request the DVD, it will be made available alot quicker. All you have to do is sign up to pre-order the DVD on when it becomes available.
You will get an email when the DVD finally comes out.
The movie is about a Beautiful Siamese Cat, named D.C. (Darn Cat).
D.C. and his owner, the cute Disney legend Hayley Mills find themselves up to their necks in crime, and chaos.
A woman has been kidnapped, and only D.C. and Hayley can help he police find her!
Dean Jones, another Disney legend, plays the special agent in charge of the kidnapped woman's case, and he is wonderful.
"That Darn Cat" is the epitome of a Disney Clasic film: A cute, charasmatic Animal as the star, plus some familiar faces in the supporting roles, mixed with the Disney comedy, action and overall fun that we have grown to love.
The late great Roddy McDowall, of "Planet of the Apes" fame, plays a great part in this movie as well.
They made a remake of "That Darn Cat' in 1997, and while it was good, it is not nearly as good as the original.
This original 1965 version of 'That Darn Cat" is the one with the Disney Magic that we all have grown used to.
This movie is full of comedy, action, suspense, intrigue, and most important, pure Disney fun.
You will definitely enjoy this movie, if you havent seen it yet. If you have seen it on video, then you know what I mean.
Hopefully, soon, Disney will release this movie on DVD, and when they do, trust me when I say that it will be a favorite of yours and your family for years and years to come.
So, come on Disney.....we are waiting. Please release "That Darn Cat" on DVD soon, so that a whole new generation can experience its wonder."
A Great Film for Character Actor fans

"Dean Jones and Hayley Mills star in this film about a teenage girl whose ornery cat becomes a surveillance tool for an FBI agent on the trail of two kidnappers. Unfortunately, Mills has to keep this a secret, which isn't easy seeing as how she has a sister who isn't exactly being cooperative (a hilarious performance by Dorothy Provine, in a much more assertive role than she usually plays) and a boyfriend named "Canoe" who thinks she's cheating on him. Add to that a snoopy next door neighbor and her virtually-deaf husband, played respectively by Elsa Lanchester and William DeMarest (they literally steal the show from the rest of the cast) and you've got a comedy that is full of belly laughs and able to withstand repeated viewings. If you're a big Hayley Mills fan, as I am, then this film will be fun for you regardless, but one of the other reasons I like this film so much is that it features many of the 60's TV show character actors: Neville Brand ("Laredo") and Frank Gorshin (the Riddler from "Batman") play the kidnappers, and Grayson Hall (Oscar Nominee for "The Night of the Iguana) plays their victim; plus there's a hilarious bit at a drive in with Richard Deacon (Mel Cooley from "Dick Van Dyke"). But by far the actors most deserving of attention are Elsa Lanchester and William DeMarest as Mills' next door neighbors - the scene at the end where Lanchester gets what's coming to her is worth the price of the video, plus some. One more comic bit worth noting: watch for Ed Wynn as a nervous jeweler (he's not on there long, but you'll be laughing the whole time he's on the screen). Great fun, arguably the most underrated Disney Comedy ever."

"I've had this pre-ordered for over a year in hopes that Disney would get off their collective bottoms and release this movie.

So they finally release it and its Full Screen. I haven't watched it yet, but they probably just used the VHS master. I wasn't looking for a full blown restoration ala Mary Poppins, but a decent Anamorphic Widescreen release would've been nice.

One of my favorite movies, but Disney gets three stars for no widescreen version.
