Bart: I don't think the piano is my instrument.
Dr. Terwilliker: What other instruments are there, pray tell? Scratchy violins, screechy piccolos, nauseating trumpets, et cetera, et cetera?
The only live-action Dr. Seuss movie for nearly a half-century, this delightful musical comedy is a treat--something for kids who thought they have seen everything. Young Bart (Tommy Rettig of TV's Lassie) detests his piano lessons with the fanatical Dr. Terwilliker (Hans Conried). As with Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, Bart falls into a dream world in which the piano teacher--renamed Dr. T--is ruler and children are hunted down to have piano lessons. Worse yet, Dr. T has magical control over Bart's mom (Mary Healy). The Oscar-nominated songs are uneven but the art direction is superb, creating a truly magical world (and the world's longest piano). Dr. Seuss's love for language stays intact. Many kids of the 1950s might remember Bart's five-fingered beanie, which was a top seller. Great fun for the 5-10 age range, and adults too. --Doug Thomas

My Violin. Haven't played seriously in years, but hope to pick it back up again soon. Now that I'm done with College (at least for now) I hope to get my fingers back into the classical music that I love so much. This violin was built by a German Violin maker in 1786. It was built from wood from the Black Forest that is supposedly extremely hard to find now. This violin was cheap for violins at around $6,000.
The Hardanger has 6, not 4, sympathetic strings. And the one shaped like a Zeta electric is actually a teaching aid, a fingerboard marked with correct finger placement for students to practice on - there's no way of making a sound with it short of using it as a drumstick.
