Hull Independent Cinema Family Films season presents: Lady and the Tramp
Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson, Hamilton Luske | 1955 | USA | Cert U | 76 mins
Rightly one of Disney’s most celebrated animated classics, Lady and the Tramp is the story of a romance between two dogs from different walks of life. Lady, a golden cocker spaniel, meets up with a mongrel dog who calls himself the Tramp. He is obviously from the wrong side of town, but happenings at Lady’s home make her decide to travel with him for a while.
On the one hand, there’s Lady, a golden cocker spaniel used to a very good life. And then she meets a mongrel, who goes by the name of Tramp. Clearly from different sides of town, Tramp and Lady nonetheless strike up a friendship, and when fate plays its hand, the two set off on their travels together, which doesn’t quite go quite as either expected. Made in an age where Disney animation was on tip-top form, there’s so much to enjoy here it’s hard to know where to start. The exquisite animation and carefully woven script both provide an excellent grounding for the film, which is then considerably enhanced by a wonderful musical score. Add in that scene, often parodied, as the two share a romantic meal in an Italian restaurant, and a pair of characters that you can’t help but root for, and you have an unmissable classic for the whole family to enjoy.
Lady and the Tramp is rated U. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
“Handsomely, seductively drawn, Lady and the Tramp owns its place in the canon.” Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
