Dir. Roy Rowland - 1953 - 92m

This incredible technicolored music fantasy is the only film ever written by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel). Young Bart (Tommy Rettig of TV's Lassie) detests his piano lessons with the fanatical Dr. Terwilliker (Hans Conried). As with Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, Bart falls into a dream world in which the piano teacher--renamed Dr. T--is ruler and children are hunted down to have piano lessons. Worse yet, Dr. T has magical control over Bart's mom (Mary Healy). Featuring Oscar-nominated songs and superb art direction , this 1950's classic creates a truly magical world (and the world's longest piano). Plus, Dr. Seuss's love for language stays intact.
