Movie Info

Disney's Almost Angels utilizes the legendary Vienna Boys' Choir as a backdrop for a corny but effective fictional yarn. Vincent Winter plays a train conductor's son, who aspire to join the choir. Upon joining the group, he runs afoul of fellow member Sean Scully, but the two eventually become friends. When Scully begins growing out of his soprano voice, Winter arranges for another boy in the choir to "cover" for his lyp-synching pal. Feeling guilty about the deception, Scully is about to quit the group, when he appointed assistant conductor thanks to his faithful service over the past few seasons. During an international tour, both Scully and new soloist Winter receive standing ovations. To remove the "sissy" onus from the Vienna Boys' Choir, the Disney staff goes to great length to show how the boys are regular, trouble-prone kids; even so, there's a scene wherein several of the boys are required to dress as girls for a public performance! Almost Angels performed adequately at the box office, but fared better as a two-parter on Walt Disney's Sunday night TV series.more
