Lady and the Tramp

Movie Summary

Clyde Geronimi

Lady and the Tramp is the beloved 1955 Disney classic that is one of the most beloved love stories of all time. Darling receives Lady as a Christmas gift. Lady is a stuck-up pup who desires the attention of her owners. Through years of gift giving and love, she finds comfort in the normality of their life. This is all about to change as our nuclear family decides to add another bundle of joy to the mix. With skepticism abound, Lady learns to love the changes and the new family. Around this time, the scruffy Tramp enters the picture. Representing the care-free, baby-less, lifestyle of living without a collar, he demonstrates the power of a small community, but also shows us the darkness surrounding this town. On the run from both the Pound and a sordid past, he eventually runs into Lady and one could say, it was love at first sight. As Darling and Jim Dear embark on a trip, an unknown relative comes to stay with two typecast Siamese cats.
