Doctor Dolittle 1967
Dr. John Dolittle (Rex Harrison) is a veterinarian, living in the quaint little town of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh, in England in 1845. Dr. Dolittle used to be a regular doctor until he found that he generally preferred the company of animals to the company of people. The real turning point in his life came when his wise old parrot Polynesia began teaching him how to speak the languages of all the animals. This unique ability to speak his patients' languages makes Dr. Dolittle the best veterinarian in England, if not the world.
In addition to his veterinary duties, Dr. Dolittle is an adventurer, traveling all over the world in search of rare and mysterious animals. The Doctor's latest quest is to find the legendary Great Pink Sea Snail...
