Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.
Holt was once a circus star, but he went off to war and when he returned it had terribly altered him. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt's children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green) swoop in to make the little elephant a star.
The locomotive engine which pulls the circus cars in Dumbo is a 4-4-0 layout (4 leading wheels, 4 drive wheels, 0 trailing wheels)... The same layout (4-4-0) are what Walt Disney used in both his backyard railroad and Disneyland Railroad engine#'s 1&2. See more »
When Dumbo escapes from the circus with Milly's help, he flies over the Brooklyn Bridge and in the background the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings are shown. The Empire State started construction in 1930 and the Chrysler Building started construction in 1928 yet the movie is set in 1919 and early 1920s. See more »
No matter what the story was, how they tried to ramp up the excitement, it was all utterly let down by the worst set of acting I have seen since my sons infant school nativity. These are supposedly professionals, those who pay their hard earned money to go and watch this, deserve better.
