This movie kept me waiting for a Bechdel for a about half of the movie - there was a moment where two unnamed lady cats ask Victoria what her name is and she responds. Maybe they get named later?

Anyway! no bechdel, dodged bechdel, Bam! All of a sudden, it's "Memory" and Victoria has that song made up for the movie responding to Grizabella - to which Griz slunks away (when they could have had a whole whole convo) , but that's a beautiful pass to me.

Followed up immediately by Old Deuteronomy (Dame Judi Dench!) having a back and forth and back with Victoria!
It becomes a whole Triple-Del!

PS There's one further -del near the choosing of the Jelical Cat where, gosh, which cat was she? maybe the like knock-things-over cat? has a quick response to something Victoria says.

Great film, bunch of Bechdels 😻
