The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T
Rated
Dr. Seuss' mind boggling Freudian fantasy about the mad piano teacher, Dr. Terwilliger, who imprisons 500 hapless kids in his rococo castle and torture dungeon forcing them to participate in the grand performance of his inane composition, "Ten Happy Fingers." Pitting the evil Dr. T.: a reluctantly heroic plumber named Zabladowski and Bartholomew Collins, who just wants to rescue his mother and play baseball. This is a true "cult" movie -- nobody who's seen it has ever forgotten it, and all the recollections are pleasant ones. Unfortunately, it was a children's movie which scared kids almost senseless, and therefore it never achieved brisk financial returns or "classic" status.
