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

Customer Review of That Darn Cat!
Another great classic
I am not extremely picky about video and sound quality and I see no problems here despite other comments about quality. The sound and picture look great to me; certainly better than the VHS days.
>I watch these 1970s Disney movies with very fond memories and I am glad they are releasing them to DVD. This is one of those movies that really does deserve a G rating, unlike many G's of today. The story is fun, funny and captivating. Haley Mills was a great actress for her time, and in my book: timeless.
>Other great movies to consider are the Kurt Russel teenager series like "The Strongest Man in the World," or "The Computer Who Wore Tennis Shoes."
>That Darn Cat is a great movie and one I personally recommend.
Number 7 of all time by a whisker
Personally, I think calling this movie "That Damn Cat" would've given the movie more edge and appealed to the kids of today, but we'll have to go with the title Disney gave this thing. The siamese cat playing that darn cat puts on a performance that would rival what Keanu Reeves or Chris Klein do on the big screen today. The cat is crosseyed so it can't see things on it's left. Anyway, craziness ensues and the cat saves China or something.
>I've got a cat named Hindenburg at home and the thing is freakin huge. She weighs 18 lbs and really doesn't do anything but sleep, eat and poop. It's really smelly poop too. I will taunt the cat at times. Sometimes when she is sleeping I dress up like a giant mouse or soft taco and run out of the kitchen screaming like a banshee. My cat usually leaps 5 feet in the air and then hisses at me. I'll just keep following her around making squeaking noises like a mouse or a sizzling noise if I'm the soft taco. The soft taco itself doesn't really make noise so I sub in the fajita sizzlin sound. It's mexican food, it's the same 6 ingredients cooked in different ways. If I want to take creative license to make a fajita noise instead of making up a noise for a soft taco, that's my right. As mentioned in earlier reviews, I like to play board games with my cat and almost always win. Hindy did beat me at Monopoly last week though because she got both boardwalk and park place. After the game I took her outside for a game of basketball in the driveway. I shut her out. A lot of that is due to the fact she doesn't have opposable thumbs and can't shoot a basketball, but even if she did she couldn't contain my post game.
>Cats are pretty cool and don't smell as bad as other pets like Dogs or Wombats. If you want a fun family movie to watch before bedtime, this film at #7 all time would be a good call. Let's face it, if I recommend something you should probably just do it. When you take where your life is at in comparison to mine, if I said to spread jelly on your face and skateboard behind an 18 wheeler you should go to the store and gets you some jelly.
Not much on extras, but at least it's a DVD!
I waited patiently for this to come out on DVD, refusing to buy the new remake or the old version in VHS. There isn't much but the movies itself, which is fine by my kids since that's all they want anyway. This version, in my opinion, is just more entertaining to watch than the remake and I hope the DVD holds up to long use!
