19 December 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

This Sunday, I’m pleased to be part of a new series of Walt Disney presentations on Turner Classic Movies. I’ll be joining Ben Mankiewicz to introduce a full evening of Disney treats, including the classic Silly Symphonies short Santa’s Workshop (1932) and two other wintry cartoons, the wonderful behind-the-scenes feature The Reluctant Dragon (1941) featuring Robert Benchley, my boyhood favorite Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier (1955), the Oscar-winning True Life Adventure The Vanishing Prairie (1954), and another film I’ve always liked, Third Man on the Mountain (1959) starring James MacArthur, Michael Rennie, Janet Munro, and Herbert Lom, followed by Perilous Assignment, an...

26 November 2014 8:07 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Disney has cut a deal with Turner Classic Movies to get more mileage out of its film vault and add the cabler’s  cinephile branding to its Hollywood Studios theme park in Florida.

Starting Dec. 21, TCM will launch the recurring showcase “Treasures From the Disney Vaults,” which will feature a range of Mouse House animated and live-action gems. The first installment bows at 8 p.m. with animated shorts “Santa’s Workshop,” “On Ice” and “Chip An’ Dale,” followed by “The Disneyland Story”; 1941’s “The Reluctant Dragon,”; a compilation of the first three segs of the Fess Parker starrer “Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier”; the 1954 nature docu “The Vanishing Prairie”; and the 1959 adventure film “Third Man on the Mountain” starring Michael Rennie and James MacArthur.
