First released in 1967 (as the last animated feature personally produced by Walt Disney), this version of the Rudyard Kipling stories is still refreshing. It doesn’t even matter that the animal voices are done by actors now largely forgotten; Phil Harris, Sebastian Cabot, Louis Prima, George Sanders and especially Sterling Holloway as Kaa the boa constrictor were perfect. The $4 million film—a third of what it would cost today—is brisk, mischievous and altogether just the right thing for a summer afternoon with the kids. (G)
