A delight: old pro Stevenson invests a sketchy story with the same flair for mysterious smoky visuals he brought to the neglected Bedknobs and Broomsticks and to Jane Eyre twenty-seven years earlier. This is a further Disney return to the picturesque England of fog, milords and crimped nannies, with every foreigner a villain - it's the Chinese this time, led by Peter Ustinov, who turns a straightforward part into an acting showcase. The English cast, too, bats right down in a way happily reminiscent of Ealing comedy. Given all these assets, the plot hardly matters.

A laugh out loud film entwined with a since of English etiquette lost in today’s society. Filled with style and sealed with a twist that no one would have expected, ‘One of our dinosaurs is missing’ has captured a loyal cult following as powerful and relentless its theme tune. Dinosaurs may have been extinct for millions of years, one dinosaur may be missing, but the discovery you have just made will last a life time.
