A word of warning of my own here: if this film can reduce a 44-year old man to tears (albeit one who is, admittedly, of somewhat dubious quality) then I fear for the mascara on the rest of you, that's all I can say.
I really ought to have known better too, because E.B. White's classic novel was read to me many, many years ago... presumably by someone who was keen for me to not be afraid of spiders. Or by someone who wanted the nightmares I had about spiders to have an even more psychologically complicated edge to them.
Not only that, but I was flicking through my little relatives' copy of the work not very long ago at all and, when I got to the line 'No one was with her when she died', I had to make up some excuse about trapping my fingers in the toilet seat in order to explain away the floods of tears. Oh heaven help us, I'm snivelling away now just thinking about it.
I can't imagine I'd have fared any better had I never clapped eyes on the blessed book to begin with. For all this film's phenomenal charm, there is that constant undercurrent of death wherever you look.
However, it is also a celebration of life. And, after all, you can't have one of those without the other. And at least the film has a wonderfully catchy score to go along with it courtesy of the Sherman Brothers.Read more ›

This 1973 animated musical drama was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and Sagittarius Productions, and tells the story of Wilber the pig (voiced by Henry Gibson), a runt of the litter who is helped by father's sweet daughter Fern (Pamelyn Ferdin), and a kind and motherly spider named Charlotte (Debbie Reynolds) to avoid the slaughterhouse. Also in the barnyard are a colourful cast of other animals, including the selfish but loveable rat Templeton (Paul Lynde).
The relationship between Wilber and Charlotte is very endearing, and the movie sends out a very important message about the substance of true friendship. I confess that whenever I watched it, the tragedy at the end always reduced me to tears, especially the genuinely moving scene between the two characters. I watched it again recently, and confess, after all these years, I still filled up.
The animation of the movie is good, though naturally inferior to what a company like Disney would have come up with, but the storyline is excellent, and complimented with charming, sing-along songs by the Sherman Brothers ('Mary Poppins', 'The Jungle Book', 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks'...) throughout. Complete with some fine comedic moments, 'Charlotte's Web' has everything to enchant the children, and indeed the adults. I only wish it was made available to purchase now on a region one DVD.
