Heavy going for all its beauty, but still superior to Disney's own live-action adaptation with Jason Scott Lee.

It's a formless, often dull time, but the verdant Technicolor (shot by Lee Garmes) gives it a nice gloss.

The color is strikingly vivid and some of the individual scenes have natural charm. But the film, as a whole, is ostentatious.

When the animals are talking their own language and roaming their improvised jungle near Los Angeles, Jungle Book is as absorbing as a behind-the-scenes trip to the zoo. But when they converse in Kipling's English, the result is painful.

Kids will like that Mowgli can talk to animals.

As directed by Zoltan Korda, the fiction takes secondary place to the highly interesting and sometimes amazing views of jungle animals in the brilliance of colored photography.

Many critics prefer the 1967 Disney version, but Korda's British production, which was nominated for 4 Oscars, is quite enjoyable.

Purists may worry that the film strays a little from Kipling's book, but the high production values, exotic locales and a grand sense of adventure ensure that this classic family fantasy film stands the test of time with ease.
