    lovely but incomplete

    Although the cast is great, and the look of the movie is lush...there are one or two songs cut from the film, including one of the most famous, I'VE GOT A LITTLE LIST...otherwise, here is a good version of the G and S classic

    UGH! I don't know why the reviewer thinks this in any way recap

    UGH! I don't know why the reviewer thinks this in any way recaps the D'Oyly Carte experience. The 1939 film is a horrendous mangling of "The Mikado," which this household's Savoyards found simply unbearable to watch. It's not just that great songs are cut; it's the butchery of the plot, complete with re-assigning character-development material to other characters (when the music for "The sun whose rays" began in Act I, a family member and I looked at each other in disbelief; when Nanki-Poo was revealed as the singer, we both exclaimed "WHAT?!" and I left the room).

    We don't expect perfection. We would settle for a relatively faithful adaptation. This isn't it.
