Movie Info

Though overlong even for a Hayley Mills vehicle, That Darn Cat is an expert blend of laughs and suspense. The eponymous feline is D.C., a Siamese belonging to sisters Hayley Mills and Dorothy Provine. One evening, D.C. comes flouncing home with a lady's wristwatch attached to her neck. The watch contains an unfinished plea for help scribbled on its back, written by Grayson Hall, a bank teller held captive in a neighboring house by robbers Neville Brand and Frank Gorshin. Mills and Provine

Robert Stevenson directed, and it's one of Disney's more watchable live-action efforts.

Pleasing Disney animal/family yarn, some laughs

Delightful Disney mystery-comedy; all hail Hayley!

This should draw even better than some of Disney's recent pictures, which were a little too far-out for some of his admirers.

Although dated, the original clearly outshines the remake. Even the cat in the original possesses superior acting talent and a wider ranges of emotions.

Audience Reviews for That Darn Cat!

Hayley Mills and Dean Jones star in this popular family favorite about a presumptuous cat that might hold the key to solving a kidnapping case. Even the crooks are more or less wholesome in this typical, if well done, Disney festival of sugar.
It was better than I was willing to give it credit for being.

This is such a fun movie! I loved the story and the great actors, and of course the cat! Much better than the 90s remake.

Oooooh man... I LOVED this movie when I was a kid! No way a remake could ever redo this clever little film centered around a very clever Siamese.

Classic Disney Live-Action comedy thriller with Hayley Mills and her mischevious, going up against bank robbers and kidnappers. It's a hip groovy good time, which reflects the 60's well. Cat-lovers will adore it.
