Rediscovering The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Disney has a box-office hit with the animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax.” But the author himself wasn’t so lucky when he released a movie called “The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T” in 1953. The musical revolves around a little boy who simply does not want to practice his piano. Although the film was a flop, it has since gathered a devoted following – including the singer Michael Feinstein, who spent 30 years chasing down its score and songs. He joins us in studio with the story.

Plus, we hear from the dancer and actor George Chakiris, who made his Hollywood debut in the film as a dancing trombone.
