Jungle Book – October 18, 1967
October 18, 1967, Disney released their feature film, The Jungle Book. Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale of the jungle was personally supervised by Walt Disney; however, he passed away during the film’s production.
Jungle Book was directed by Wolfgang Reitherman and featured the voices of Phil Harris as Baloo, Sebastian Cabot as Bagheera, Louis Prima as King Louie, George Sanders as Shere Khan, Sterling Holloway as Kaa, Bruce Reitherman as Mowgli and Clint Howard as Junior.
The song “Bare Necesseties,” was written by Terry Gilkyson, which was nominated for an Academy Award.
Great rare footage of Louis Prima and the story behind the song, “I Wanna Be Like You.”
