3 stars out of 5 -- "It's a rather British film in its approach -- in a charming and celebratory way -- and has a good story and a score by Miklos Rozsa."

The whole family will enjoy this lavish Technicolor version of Rudyard Kipling's classic adventure story. The Jungle Book tells the tale of a young boy named Mowgli, who is raised from infancy by wolves in the jungles of India. Imagine his surprise when he comes face to face with a creature he has never seen before - man!

Mowgli's daring exploits take him from the fabulous bejewelled secret City Of The Dead Kings to a final encounter with his mortal enemy - Shere-Khan the Killer Tiger! This film's brilliantly colorful cinematography, music and art direction all earned Academy Award nominations.
