  • Out of the Vault: Lady and the Tramp

    ladyandthetramp

     Disney’s Lady and the Tramp is released from the ‘vault’ - available on DVD from 7 May 2014.

    Originally released in theatres in June 1955, Lady and the Tramp has enjoyed a long life, delighting young and old for almost 60 years.

    My first introduction to this animated feature came during the mid-90s when it was re-released in Australian theatres. I was eager to catch up, feeling out of the loop for not knowing this Disney classic by heart like all my VCR-having young friends. Tramp, Lady and all did not disappoint: the music, the animation, the story of puppy love (pun intended) from two different sides of the tracks and the memorable “We are Siamese if you please. We are Siamese if you don't please” from the two trouble-making cats, Si and Am. I was hooked.

     

    “I'll bet they got a lid on every trash can. Uh-oh, and a fence around every tree. I wonder what the leash-and-collar set does for excitement?”
    -Tramp

     

    The Vault

    Disney is known for releasing its titles for a limited time only. After a period of time, the title is placed ‘in the vault’ and is not made available until the next re-release rotation (up to 7 years). Lady and the Tramp has not been available on DVD for some time.
    A new generation of children (and grown-up-children) can enjoy this film once more.
