Lady and the Tramp Diamond Edition Review
By DVD Verdict

“Another Disney masterpiece gets the first-rate "Diamond Edition” treatment…While some might consider Lady and the Tramp to be a charming but safe entertainment, it's really far more complex and moving than most standard “family fare.”

Disney films are cherished not only for their craftsmanship, but because they never “talk down” to us; they work as allegories for adults as much as they work as entertainment for children. In Lady and the Tramp, Disney offers a deceptively simple story—a beloved pet is displaced by a baby and ends up having an adventure with a street mutt—but layers it with sophistication and a decidedly dark undercurrent.

The theme of abandonment is prominent here. Lady is emotionally abandoned by her family when the baby comes; Tramp and the other street dogs have been abandoned by owners and society, in general…Lady, in fact, does find herself on her own, though on account of Aunt Sarah and not her own people. In a harrowing sequence, she's chased and nearly mauled by a pack of vicious dogs, only to be saved by Tramp, who puts his life on the line to save her. Much of this dogfight is depicted in shadows, a technique Disney animators would use later in The Lion King.

Then there's the scene at the dog pound, where Lady finds herself after getting picked up while running with Tramp. Much of it's played for dark humor—I wonder how many children actually got the references to old prison flicks or noticed that the shadows of the bars on the cages making the dogs look like they're wearing stripes—but it's really a pretty sobering sequence. Close-ups of dogs in cages with tears running down their faces effectively communicate the horror of abandonment; one dog (again, in shadow) even walks “the last mile.” It's also a very witty scene that includes a Russian breed who quotes Gorky and an English bulldog with a heavy accent. We also get Peggy Lee as a dog named Peg (who used to be in the “Dog and Pony Follies”) singing what might be the sexiest song ever included in a Disney film, “He's a Tramp.”

In lesser hands, this all might have been too much, too sad or too facile, exploitative or obvious. But Disney and company knew just how far to take things, how to push the emotional envelope without losing the audience. Of course, the romance between the title characters is what most people remember, and it remains delightful. The scene of the two dogs sharing a spaghetti dinner while being serenaded with the lovely “Bella Notte” is an icon of romantic cinema.

For its Blu debut, Disney gives Lady and the Tramp (Blu-ray) its “Diamond Edition” treatment; like the other Diamond releases, the studio hits this one out of the park. Much as I love this film, I'd never been bowled over by the animation—until now. At the risk of tossing out a cliché, frankly, watching this edition was like seeing the film for the first time. The stunning image—Disney's first in widescreen Cinemascope—is presented in its original aspect ratio. Detail is remarkable, and the colors are vivid. The image is simply breathtaking—exactly the kind of great work we've come to expect from Disney Blu. Audio is equally fine. There are two English language tracks, a rich DTS-HD 7.1, as well as a DTS-HD representation of the film's original 3.0 track.

The disc comes fully loaded with supplements old and new, with enough goodies to keep the disc in play long after the film has ended…Heartfelt, funny, moving, and more than a little subversive, Lady and the Tramp is a great film getting a great Blu-ray release. Unqualified recommendation."
