    Great movie. I saw it back in 1969, when it came out. Always remembered it. Never saw it again. Very heartwarming movie, and should be shown again. I must have been about 13 years old. Please put it back on tv.

    • Ian M. says:

      Me too. Great, heartwarming movie and eye opening for a suburban white guy. Never saw it again and always wondered about it. Would love to see it again and share with my daughter.

  • Mark says:

    Wonderful movie that really tugs at the heartstrings. Very sweet and special story. Great cast — both human and feline. Wish they made more movies with a story that stays with you like this.
