The standout song goes to Harris, a rhythmic 'Bare Necessities' extolling the value of a simple life and credited to Terry Gilkyson. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- It's a rather British film in its approach -- in a charming and celebratory way -- and has a good story and a score by Miklos Rozsa.

Rating: B+ -- The plot and pacing may be nearly as lazy as the sloth bear Baloo (Phil Harris), but animators use that to their advantage, developing the characters so that even minor ones seem majorly entertaining. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- Written by the Sherman Brothers, the songs are catchy and make me smile every time I hear them. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Here's yet another animated feature from Disney's mostly barren stretch between its two golden ages, a film that plays better in nostalgia-tinged memories than in the here-and-now. Full Review

The Jungle Book tells the tale of a young boy named Mowgli, who is raised from infancy by wolves in the jungles of India. Imagine his surprise when he comes face to face with a creature he has never seen before - man!

Mowgli's daring exploits take him from the fabulous bejewelled secret City Of The Dead Kings to a final encounter with his mortal enemy - Shere-Khan the Killer Tiger! This film's brilliantly colorful cinematography, music and art direction all earned Academy Award nominations.
