Pinocchio (1940)

 pinocchio“A lie keeps growing and growing until it’s as plain as the nose on your face.” – Blue Fairy

Number of Times Seen – Too many to count (video in the 80’s and 90’s and 8 Jun 2014)

Brief Synopsis – The iconic tale of the wooden puppet who strives to be a real boy

My Take on it – There aren’t too many people who don’t know the story of Pinocchio; the story of a puppet who wants to be a real boy.

This movie is filled with so many scenes and situations that we all know so well like the fact that his nose grows when he lies and that he was turned into a donkey (oops, yes spoiler alert 🙂 on those scenes).

The ironic thing is that his nose only grows once throughout the entire movie, but people seem to think that it happened numerous times.

I haven’t watched this is so many years, but it all came back to me as I viewed it again.   I was actually surprised that this relatively short movie had so many things happen.  It made me feel that good ole Uncle Walt wanted to get so much in, he just crammed in as many story lines as possible in the 90 minutes running time.

Great that this movie is still good so many years later.

Bottom Line – Great classic movie. Still stands up after 70 years. Highly Recommended

Rating – Oscar Worthy

  2. I just love the songs in Pinocchio. I haven’t watched it for years. I have a question….. his turning into a little boy… is that permanent ? Does he become a real human ?
