D23 membership, I successfully obtained tickets to next month's "50 and Fabulous" screening of THE ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR (1961) on the Disney Studios lot.
Somehow I've never seen this Disney live-action film, and given the interest I've developed in the careers of Fred MacMurray and Nancy Olson, it will be a particular treat seeing it for the first time in a beautiful theater.
I look forward to sharing a report on the event when the screening takes place on March 12th.
Last month I was privileged to attend a wonderful 50 and Fabulous event celebrating ONE HUNDRED AND ONE DALMATIANS (1961). The other films in the series, to be shown later this year, are THE PARENT TRAP and BABES IN TOYLAND.
