Lady and the Tramp Blu-ray Review
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Disney’s romantic tale Lady and the Tramp is now available on Blu-ray DVD as part of the Diamond Collection. Lady and the Tramp is the story of Lady, a pampered and sheltered cocker spaniel who has a happy life with Jim Dear and Darling. But the arrival of a baby in the family threatens Lady’s position in their hearts.
After the baby is born, Jim Dear and Darling go away for a while, leaving their baby with Aunt Sarah. After Aunt Sarah’s troublesome Siamese cats get Lady in trouble, Lady briefly runs away and meets up with Scamp, a street smart mutt that takes her on unforgettable adventures.
I have seen Lady and the Tramp numerous times over the years; I owned it on VHS as a child, and now I am excited to have it on Blu-ray to share with my daughter, who is particularly fond of dogs and any Disney movie that features them as main characters. Lady and the Tramp also features one of the most romantic and beloved screen kisses of all time: Lady and Tramp falling in love over a plate of spaghetti while being serenaded with moonlight and song.
I can’t remember the last time that I watched Lady and the Tramp, but when we sat down to watch it together today, I was delighted to recognize a couple of my favorite Disney voices: Barbara Luddy (Lady) and Verna Felton (Aunt Sarah). I have no idea why I didn’t recognize their voices until today, but they also voiced Merryweather and Flora, respectively, in another favorite Disney film, Sleeping Beauty.
Lady and the Tramp is absolutely adorable! My daughter enjoyed watching it so much that as soon as it was over, she requested to watch it again. I’m sure that we’ll both have this movie memorized soon enough.
Disney Second Screen If you have an iPad, you can get even more behind-the-scenes with this movie when your iPad interacts with the movie while you are watching it. Just have your iPad on your lap while you watch, and your Blu-ray will sync up with your iPad!
Deleted Scenes These deleted scenes show an alternate scene for when the baby is born, when Lady meets Boris, and when Tramp and Lady become involved with a dog show, as well as a deleted song that Tramp sings. Personally, I cannot imagine this movie done any other way, and love it just the way it is.
Diane Daisy Miller: Remembering Dad I loved this short interview with Walt Disney’s daughter as she talks about her childhood, their apartment above the firehouse in Disneyland, and the museum that memorializes this legacy.
