10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Animated Film Charlotte’s Web

I cried when I first read the book Charlotte's Web, and in some subsequent readings, too. I cried when I watch the animated film in 1973. And I cried at the live-action remake in 2006, although my kids didn't understand why. By then it was a flashback to my childhood experience of the story. If you have fond memories of watching the 1973 animated version of Charlotte's Web, you'll want to read a trivia list about the movie.  

10. Debbie Reynolds offered to forego her salary to play Charlotte.

Reynolds loved the book so much that she was willing to voice Charlotte’s part just for the fun of it. That’s true dedication to one’s craft.

4. The author wasn’t too fond of the movie.

Just as he feared the director and the animators changed too much about his book. He watched it once and then never again.

E. B. White objected to the songs in the film, but Hollywood did not change the story as much as it changes most stories. Read more about the 1973 Charlotte's Web at TVOM.
