The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T
director:
Roy Rowland
cast:
Peter Hayes, Hans Conreid, Tommy Rettig

Written by Dr. Seuss, Fingers is the fantastical Technicolor tale of 9-year-old Bart who resents his piano lessons and imagines his teacher as an authoritarian madman who imprisons 500 little boys at a giant keyboard to rehearse his masterpiece 24-7. Bart seeks to save his comrades by concocting an atomic potion to sabotage the grand recital. “There’s enough colorful whimsy here to divert a young audience, but also enough pop Freud and political allegory to keep...adults happy.” Recommended for ages 7+.
