This entertaining Disney picture details the exploits of D.C., a Siamese cat owned by Patti and Ingrid Randall (Hayley Mills and Dorothy Provine). One night D.C. follows a pair of bank robbers to the apartment where they are holding a bank teller (Grayson Hall) prisoner. The robbers let the mischievous feline in long enough for the teller to scratch "Hel" (she doesn't have time to add the "p") on the back of her watch and attach it to the cat's collar. Patti finds the message and brings it to Zeke Kelso (Dean Jones), an FBI agent who, despite being allergic to cats, decides to follow the animal to the robbers. After running into a series of funny slapstick situations while trailing D.C. on its nocturnal wanderings, Zeke brings the crooks to justice. Silly, fun stuff, with a good supporting cast that includes Elsa Lanchester, William Demarest, and Roddy McDowall as nosy neighbors; Ed Wynn as a helpful jeweler; and Neville Brand and Frank Gorshin as the robbers. leave a comment
