Okay Disney movie
30 June 2017 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

When Walt Disney started to move into television, he kept up the same high level of quality that was usually found in his theatrical movies, so much so that these television productions sometimes later got a theatrical release to American and/or foreign theaters. "The Horse Without a Head" is one such example of this. One of the most interesting aspects of this effort is that it lacks the clean polish usually associated with Disney; while it's obvious some considerable expense was put into it, the look and feel of the movie is scuzzy and unkempt. But it's appropriate for this particular tale of poor French children getting tangled with a robbery plot. Strangely, these children, while essential to the plot, don't make much of an appearance in the first third of the movie. The plot unfolds in a fairly predictable and familiar manner, and there is a bit too much talk and not quite enough action. But kids with some patience will probably get a kick out of it. Parents will find it tolerable, and probably find the most amusing part of the production the fact that one of the villains strongly resembles a young Walt Disney!
