Lady and the Tramp, the classic beloved story of friendship and love, has been released from the Disney vault just in time for Valentine's Day. As the 15th animated film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, Lady and the Tramp took several year's to complete (released to theaters June 22, 1955.) Disney began story development in 1937 after Disney story creator Joe Grant introduced a concept based on his own pooch (a Springer Spaniel named Lady) to Walt Disney. Though the story evolved over the years prior to it's completion and release, various scenes in the film mimic the real life milestones of it's creators. The opening scene where Lady is gifted to "Darling" on Christmas morning, was based on the gift of a Chow puppy (presented in a hat box) that Walt Disney gave his wife Lilly.
Lady and the Tramp portrays a classic story of friendship, family, and love that many generations previous have fallen in love with. The soundtrack from this film is (hands down) one of the very best soundtracks Disney has produced to date; and the gorgeous animation is absolutely stunning on Blu-ray, as is the sound.

A classic love story unfolds in the best Disney tradition as a lovely young pedigreed cocker spaniel named Lady, who lives a pampered life, finds herself falling romantically for Tramp, an amorous street-smart pooch without prospects. Although they have fun together on several dates, including a
sentimental spaghetti dinner by moonlight at Tony’s restaurant, their relationship is strained not only by Lady’s loyalty to her human family and their newborn baby, but by Tramp’s devil-may-care attitude that eventually gets Lady in trouble and tossed into the dog pound. However, good-hearted Tramp redeems himself by saving the baby from potential harm and thus wins Lady’s love and the affection of her human family.
