Bedknobs and Broomsticks

I enjoyed this magical story. The mixture of real actors and animation is wonderfully done. A very young Angela Lansbury is perfect as the amateur witch, and the three children are delightful. There is a great dance sequence around the streets of London, a very funny cartoon soccer game, and lots more fantastic happenings. A lovely film, suitable for viewers of any age - 4 to 104!
