Bedknobs and Broomsticks


Rated G 
Set in World War II England, Angela Lansbury plays Eglantine Price, an amateur witch who uses her mischievous powers to thwart a Nazi invasion. Fantastical rides aboard her magical bedstead help her win the hearts of three irascible children in her care. Sensational special effects combine animation and live action. When it was released in 1971, this was Disney's most spectacular effects-driven movie.Bedknobs and Broomsticks
