Beauty and the Beast, 1946 - ★★★

Made at a time when effects were still special there is a certain magic to the entire film that's hard not to admire. Unfortunately the more pantomime aspects and accompanying audience laughter age the film badly.

(According to Letterboxd I've seen this before but I don't remember it. The 2006 entry was automatic based on title so could have been a different version but it's unlikely I'd be watching the Disney version on TV)
