Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, April 17, 1997 AAi levi [] h "1 O1 Dalmatians, a real puppy tale" By Barney Basin Disney's newest video release, "101 Dalmatians" shows the old Disney magic is still there. This film is as much fun as any Disney live action and almost as much fun as the cartoon version. As with the cartoon, the real stars of this production are the dalmatians. Glenn Close as Crnella DeVil runs a close second. Disney studios has always been known for creating the most vicious, vile, villains in filmdom. As a cartoon this is easier than real life performances. Glenn is as close to a mirror image of the pen and ink character as one could get. She is the only one in the cast that steals the show from the dogs. In the cartoon version some of the best dialogue belonged to the animals. In this version the animals have no speaking parts, but the story still unfolds with all it's magic. The storyline has been up dated, the rescue short- ened, and the villainess really gets her come uppance, are some of the changes in the new version, but all add to a good film. Hugh Laurie and Mark Williams as Horace and Jasper, Cruella's two clumsy, crooked, cohorts also turned in a creditable performance. Jeff Daniels and Joely Richardson play Roger and Anita, but as in the cartoon they are just supporting performers behind the two dalmatians, Pongo and Perdy. This film might aim one more kick at the fur trade much as Bambi did to deer hunters. For an evening of light entertainment "101 Dalma- tians" will please the whole family. If you haven't seen the cartoon version rent it also and have a dalmatian party. You'll be seeing spots before the night is over. i. glrt Wlv Gl ].
