Movie Info

Based on a Broadway musical by Mel Brooks and Joe Darion, the animated feature Shinbone Alley is an adaptation of the Don Marquis stories. The film is about a love-struck cockroach named Archy (voiced by Eddie Bracken) and the object of his affections, a carefree cat named Mehitabel (Carol Channing). The movie is arranged as a series of episodic adventures and though it never quite gels into something cohesive, it has a number of fine moments, particularly when it sticks to the music.more

It is a production that is constantly at odds with itself in regard to both style and substance.

Audience Reviews for Shinbone Alley


Only got about ten minutes into it. Way, way, way too weird, and that's coming from a Ralph Bakshi fan.
