Product Description


When a slightly cross-eyed Siamese cat named D.C. (Darn Cat) turns up with a wristwatch around his neck instead of a collar, it could be just the clue the FBI needs to crack a series of bank robberies in this lightweight comedy from Disney. The watch belongs to a bank teller who has been taken hostage. Dean Jones stars as the good-hearted FBI agent assigned to the case. Unfortunately, he is highly allergic to, you guessed it, cats. Hayley Mills is D.C.'s doting owner who hatches a hair-brained scheme to follow D.C.'s every move until he returns to the crooks' hideout where he got the wristwatch. After a lot of sneezing, slapstick, and comedic intrigue, the bank robbers are foiled, the hostage is safe, and everyone is happy. An impressive supporting cast of Frank Gorshin, Elsa Lanchester, Roddy McDowall, and Ed Wynn add to the zaniness. Released in 1965 (and remade in 1997), it is understandably dated, but the performances are fun nonetheless. Hayley Mills is delightful as the determined and unflappable wannabe sleuth, and Dean Jones proves he is adept at physical comedy. This is a movie of little consequence, just a clean, fun diversion that the whole family can watch. The theme song is sung by Bobby Darin. --Peggy Maltby-Etra

(Darn Cat) turns up with a wristwatch for a collar, it becomes a tip-off to an unsolved robbery and kidnapping. You don't know who's tailing who as nosy neighbors, jealous boyfriends, and a highly allergic FBI agent play a game of cat and mouse to crack the baffling case. Don't miss the spectacular supporting cast featuring Dorothy Provine, Roddy McDowall, Frank Gorshin, and Ed Wynn, plus 100 purr-cent feline family fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Disney Classic! April 13 2003
By Ann
Format:VHS Tape
I first saw this around 1977 when I was in either 1st or 2nd Grade with my class from those old reel projectors that schools used to use for showing movies. When I first saw this movie with my class, I loved it!! :) I also loved the Bobby Darin theme song in this movie.
One scene stood out for me was when the nosy neighbor wanted to spy on Patti and Zeke (the detective), so she used her husband's hearing aid to listen in their conversation...but all she got was a bug buzzing in the microphone! I used to wear the body worn hearing aid at that time, and one of my classmates exclaimed, "His hearing aid's is like Nancy's!" LOL That memory always made me smile.
I have the videocassette for memory's sake since this is one of my favorite movies since I was a kid. Your kids or any adult would love this clean, funny movie as much as I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites Aug. 8 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I never get tired of this movie. It is a classic and the actors are charming, the story is brisk and it still intrigues me after 15 years of watching it. Much better than the newer version!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully classic Hayley Mills May 1 2003
Format:VHS Tape
What is there to say about Haley Mills? This movie is one of her best and we've watched it over and over. We loaned it out and lost it; so we're buying it AGAIN! It's a great family movie that is fun and has no sex, profanity, or other objectionable material. Young children may find the "bad guys" a little disturbing in certain kidnap scenes, but the scenes are not graphic or objectionable. However, it is LOTS of fun even for us adults.

4.0 out of 5 stars On the trail (tail?) of a hero-cat March 16 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Families and cat-lovers will delight in this comedy-mystery (based upon a novel by The Gordons) about DC Randall, Siamese sleuth, who comes home one night from his regular wanderings with a woman's wristwatch around his neck. Patti (Mills), DC's person, takes the wild but accurate guess that the watch belongs to a neighborhood bank teller kidnapped in a robbery only that morning, contacts the FBI, and involves Agent Zeke Kelso (Jones), who's unfortunately allergic to cats, in the case. Three nights of confusion and mayhem follow as the FBI tries to follow their "informant" in the hopes that he'll return to the place he acquired the watch.
DC himself, of course, is the star of the picture--a handsome and talented cat, splendidly trained, who strews chaos in his wake wherever he goes (the sequence in the drive-in on the second night is the stuff classic comedy is made of). Mills, with her distinct British accent, is somewhat less than believable as a California surfer girl, but Jones is, as always, a delightful straight man to the wild improbabilities going on around him. The cast also features Dorothy Provine as Patti's older sister Ingrid; Roddy McDowell as Gregory Benson, who's trying to eel his way into her affections; Tom Lowell as Patti's surfer boyfriend, Canoe; Neville Brand as the tough and sinister bank robber Dan and Frank Gorshin as the mildly maniacal Iggy; and Elsa Lanchester and William Demarest as the Randalls' nosy neighbor and her long-suffering husband. Though lacking in the high-tech gadgetry of more modern films of its kind, the movie also manages a fair degree of suspense (Will DC return to the robbers' hideout in time to save the hostage? Will Benson or Canoe queer the FBI's deal?). While I haven't seen the remake, I suspect the original is superior; even its more physical moments of comedy have a certain grace about them. And certainly there are abundant laugh-out-loud moments. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars "That Darn Cat" is a Disney gem! Jan. 18 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Young teenager Patti Randall (Hayley Mills) discovers that the Randall cat, D.C. which stands for Darn Cat, comes home one night wearing a wrist-watch around his neck. Scratched behind the watch are the letters 'H', 'E', and part of an 'L'. Patti's imagination runs away with her and she figures out that the letters were supposed to spell out the word "HELP"! Patti thinks that the watch belongs to a kidnapped teller, Margaret Miller (Grayson Hall). And she is correct! Ms. Miller had been kidnapped by two bank robbers Dan (Neville Brand) and Sammy (Frank Gorshin) and fearing for her life, had put the wristwatch on D.C. Luckily, Patti, ignoring her sister Ingrid's (Dorothy Provine) commands on not to call the police, instead calls the FBI and gets help from Agent Zeke Kelso (Dean Jones). From there starts a zany adventure in which Zeke Kelso has to follow D.C. to the crooks while fighting off nosy neighbors, jealous boyfriends, and D.C.'s disappearing maneuvers.
Based on the book "Undercover Cat" written by the Gordons, "That Darn Cat" is a Disney gem! For those who have read the book must be warned though that this movie is very different from the book, yet still hilarious and exciting! One of the best things about this movie though is that superb cast of stars! Everyone is perfect for their parts, from Hayley Mills the full-of-life Randall girl, Ingrid the serious sister, Dean Jones the allergic FBI agent, Roddy McDowall the short-tempered neighbor, Elsa Lanchester the nosy neighbor, her husband played by William Demarest, Tom Lowell as Canoe the jealous boyfriend, Ed Wynn the very nervous watch jeweler, and Richard Eastham as the FBI Supervisor. And of course we can't forget D.C. who is actually a very good actor!
