DVD: Lady and the Tramp (U)
Friday 03 February 2012
"He's a self-confessed chicken thief, and all-around
sleazeball," is how scoffing Josh described the Tramp in The Last
Days of Disco.
In truth, the alpha-male hound, who falls for a pampered cocker spaniel, is more loveable than that in Disney's charming animation. The mutt lives by his wits on the streets, until he becomes smitten with prim Lady. There's lots to recommend this gorgeous romance – the Siamese cats, dopey hound Trust, who has lost his sense of smell – but the scene where Lady and Tramp share a plate of spaghetti, coming nearer to a kiss, to Peggy Lee and Sonny Burke's "Bella Notte" takes some beating.
