30 Day Disney Challenge: Day Three
Day Three: Your favorite heroine
Miss Price. Angela Lansbury played an amateur witch who saves England from the Nazis. How awesome is that? And she did it all while dealing with three orphan brats, David Tomlinson wanting to put her in showbiz, and Roddy McDowall trying to get into her pants (trufax).
Unlike other Disney female heroes she was fiercely independent and self-assured. (Until Mulan came along it seemed like the primary function of the heroine was to deal with her private love life). Also ”witch heroines” aren’t common to begin with, but I found it has been rarer in Disney movies. As a proper, intelligent woman, Miss Eglentine Price gets my respect.
