This week we cover our first Disney film with 1971’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks. The late Angela Lansbury stars in this fantasy-war film set in the August of 1940. Three cockney evacuees are transported into a world of magic by Egalentine Price, an apprentice witch who wants to use her magic to aid the war effort.
This film has possibly the best depiction of the make up of the British and Commonwealth military during the war in the Portobello Road sequence and its representation of the Home Guard isn’t bad either! Join the boys as they revisit this childhood classic.
