Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Product Description

The film was a big Christmas release, grossing more than $9 million at the box office, due in part to a screenplay written by the original authors of the story "Undercover Cat," Millie and Gordon Gordon, along with Bill Walsh, and a popular title tune written by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, sung by Bobby Darrin.

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 Cats Rule & Dogs SUCK! April 1 2004
Format:VHS Tape
The best movie of all time! My favorite part is when the cat tricks that bulldog ((...) that dog was so stupid!). So the cat climbs up the tree and knocks the hummingbird feeder off and it falls in the corner of the yard. The bulldog wakes up and runs over to the spot and starts jumping up and down barking. That (...) dog did not even notice the cat slinking up and start eating his food. Then he finally notices the cat and chases him. The cat jumps on top of a loose board, causing the other end to come up. Just as the dog gets there the board hits him HARD on the face. And he's all whimpering 'n' stuff and the cat runs away! Then the dog sticks his sorry face up and he says, "That Darn Cat!" I could not stop laughing through the whole movie! THIS IS DEFINATLY A MOVIE FOR CAT LOVERS (NOT DOG LOVERS!). HOPE YOU THINK SO TOO!*

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em like this anymore Sept. 22 2013
By Taser Me TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I don't recall seeing this film as a kid even though I watched a lot of Hayley Mills' Disney films at the time. I came upon it by chance in the late 1990s while I was flipping. I watched about 15 minutes of it and found it to be very funny and highly entertaining. I then turned to the program I planned to watch, but made a note of when "That Darn Cat" was next on, so when it came on again, I watched it and absolutely fell in love with it. It is a very well-written, well-directed, and well-acted film. The cast really looks like they had a lot of fun making that film. Since my love affair with that film began, I have given it as a gift several times to the children of friends and family. I have recommended it to adults too because although it is billed as a kiddies' movie, it perfecty suited for adult viewers. The phrase and concept of "creeping matrimony" is also part of my lexicon and thinking because of this film.

With Bobby Darin singing the catchy theme song, a clever and adorable cat stealing fish as well as scenes, a cast of well-known actors bringing their "A game," and a very well-wriiten and hilarious story, this is the perfect night's entertainment for the whole family. Family could mean generations or it could be just a couple. This movie is so much fun its appeal is to people of all ages. It is also a film that you will watch and re-watch because there is just so much to it.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Disney Classic! April 13 2003
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 Classic Cat! March 2 2004
By Kim
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is a crowd pleaser to this day! I show it as a special reward to my 2nd grade classes each year, and it is wonderful to see that a good, old-fashioned family film is enjoyable after 40+ years! They love the slapstick humor, and they like to complain about the nosy neighbor. Disney at its finest!
