That Darn Cat! (1965)

“Good night, old woman, I can’t hear a word you’re saying, but whatever it is, I disagree with you one hundred percent! ” – Mr. MacDougall

Number of Times Seen – 1 (28 Jun 2021)

Brief Synopsis – An FBI agent who is allergic to cats is sent on a mission to find a missing bank teller who sent a message for help via a cat.

My Take on it – Really silly film that doesn’t work at all.

Dean Jones was a Disney staple in the 60’s and 70’s and he is the best thing about this movie.

He is able to play the slapstick role quite well and causes lots of mayhem as he tries to discover the whereabouts of this missing woman.

The supporting cast is fine but Ed Wynn stands out among everyone else as a jeweler who tries to help with the case.

Love seeing Frank Gorshin as one of the kidnappers.

He is best known for playing The Riddler in the Batman TV series of the 60’s.

Also was happy to see Hayley Mills here even if she is no longer playing the character of a little girl like most of her Disney roles were.

The music is typical Disney fare that is catchy to listen to especially when it’s written by The Sherman Brothers.

Unfortunately, this film doesn’t age very well and instead of being funny, it feels completely pointless in all that it does here.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Patti’s dislike of surfer movies is likely a cheeky reference to A.I.P.’s concurrent “Beach Party” movies, reflecting Walt Disney’s discomfort of his star Annette Funicello appearing in them. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (4/10)
