Look Who's Sneaking into Theaters

Paddington Bear
Heyday Films
Although the story of a little bear named Paddington has been aroud since 1958, his story is just now making it to the big screen - and practically sneaking in as there has been little fanfare for the film.

The original story was an inspiration that came to author Michael Bond on Christmas Eve in 1956. Bond noticed a lone teddy bear sitting all by himself on a store shelf near Paddington Station, so he purchased the bear as a gift for his wife. Bond then wrote "A Bear Called Paddington" in ten days, but it wasn't published until October 13, 1958 by William Collins & Sons. Since then, more than 20 books have been written about the stuffed little guy.
