‘Bedknobs and Broomsticks’comes to DVD with restored scenes

Buena Vista Home Entertainment is preparing a nice DVD presentation of the Disney favorite, Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971) for this coming March.

In World War II-era England, three young orphans are sent to live with Eglantine Price (Angela Lansbury), a woman taking a mail order course in witchcraft who uses her new powers to repel an invading German unit.

Directed by Robert Stephenson, the film stars Angela Lansbury, Roddy McDowall, Bruce Forsyth, John Ericson, David Tomlinson, and Sam Jaffe.

Though we don’t yet have details on the picture and sound, we do know that plans are to restore the film to its original length, which includes 3 deleted songs. Production stills are also planned for the disc.

‘Bedknobs and Broomsticks’ is scheduled for release on March 20th. It will carry a suggested retail price of $29.99.
