Lady & Tramp Mix

Actors Barbara Luddy and Larry Roberts pose in front of storyboards drawn by Joe Rinaldi. They voiced the title characters in Disney's 1955 CinemaScope film Lady and the Tramp. 
Roberts was famous during the 1950s for his TV roles and his performances as a stand-up comic.
Luddy would later provide voices for Disney, including Merryweather in Sleeping Beauty, Kanga in the Winnie the Pooh films and the Church Mouse in Robin Hood.

Singer Peggy Lee had a major influence on the film. She wrote songs and was the voice of Darling, both Siamese Cats and of course the showgirl dog Peg.

  1. Andreas, I don't like the songs of the live action of Beauty and the Beast it's silly why thay change the lyrics for the movie and Celine Dion the new song "How does the last and forever" I don't like it, it looks to much modern then the classic 1991 version and I'm sorry for Gaston he looks stupid in the live action version but your character is much better.
    Did you have the time to answer my question Andreas.

  2. I think it will be a nice film, although the 1991 original will everlastingly be the best. This current film will make the original version more dignified.

    Mr. Deja, I hope your film Mushka is proceeding as planned. Wish you only the best!

  3. Have you heard about The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild.

  4. I love the magazine ad for the dog food. It emphasizes how important Walt Disney and the animators have been to American culture and history. I always loved how "Lady and the Tramp" and "101 Dalmations" capture the optimism and joy of pets, just as "Bambie" and "the Lion King" capture the power and mystery of animals in the wild.
