If you were lucky enough to be watching TCM on the night of the day after New Year’s Day, you might have caught The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T, the only film written and designed by Dr. Seuss (1953). It stars Tommy Rettig (Timmy from the original Lassie TV show) and Hans Conried (remember Uncle Tonoose in Make Room for Daddy?). And if you’re lucky enough to own one of those new-fangled color TV sets, you would have seen all the wonderful, live-action Seuss sets in living chroma color. In case you missed it, here’s a link for a taste of this Dali-esque, cinemafantastic, celluloidish, joyful, screwball adventure.
