Similar in many ways to MARY POPPINS, BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS is filled with unique special effects and delightful music. Angela Lansbury stars as Eglantine Price, the owner of a seaside house in England who has three children foisted on her during WWII. At first, the children aren't
thrilled about being relocated. Then they learn that Eglantine is studying witchcraft by mail and has much mischief planned for the Nazis if they ever land in England. With a bedstead as their magic carpet, Eglantine takes the kids on a wonderful ride into several fantastic worlds. Animation is
neatly mixed with live action, and Lansbury, engaging as ever, heads a capable cast.
