DOCTOR DOLITTLE (Theatrical Release United Kingdom 1967)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Doctor Dolittle—Rex Harrison—seems a little magical in its presentation. It’s a sweet strut through an old story and is memorable for its time of release.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. A cute, sweet, interpretation by Rex Harrison of character Doctor Dolittle, the man who could talk to animals. Harrison uses the same talk/sing technique for the musical parts that he used in My Fair Lady. His screen presence is indomitable. The movie works for its dollar and presents many fantasy scenes that are intriguing.
