A bank robbery – a kidnapping – and a Siamese caught in the middle of it all. Can D.C. (short for “Darn Cat”) lead the good guys to the bad guys and save the day? And be cute at the same time?
“That Darn Cat!” (1965) is a comedy featuring Hayley Mills, Dean Jones, and Roddy McDowall. And some highly talented animal actors, especially the Siamese who played D.C.
Let’s face it, the real star is D.C. Watching his antics is priceless. The whole duck scene is worth the cost of the DVD.
D.C. is handsome, cute, and funny. A Seal Point Siamese, D.C. commands every scene he’s in. It’s hard to take your eyes off him. I loved him just being a cat – a perpetually hungry cat. He’s adorable when he wants some fish or part of a sandwich. D.C. is smart, tricky, and his own cat. No one owns him. He does as he pleases – as cats do.
This great Disney family feature was released in 1965 but still resonates with funny scenes, innocent romance, crime suspense, and fun. Yes, this is a fun movie, especially if you love cats. And if you love cats, check it out on DVD! 4 stars!
