Age of Believing, The: The Disney Live Action Classics (2008)

*** (out of 4)

Angela Lansbury narrates this documentary that takes a look at the live action films coming from Disney after Walt determined they'd be easier to make and would keep cash flowing into the studios while they also worked on their more difficult animated productions. Film critics Leonard Maltin and Richard Schickel are interviewed as well as actors Kurt Russell, Dean Jones, Dick Van Dyke, Hayley Mills, Tommy Kirk, Michele Lee and James MacArthur among others. Director Fitzgerald does a very good job at keeping the film moving and I was fascinated with the stories of Disney and why he decided to enter the live action pictures. I must admit that I haven't seen too many of the film discussed here so on that level this worked perfectly at spiking my interest in certain films. We see clips from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Parent Trap, Pollyanna, The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, Old Yeller and many more but I guess it's worth noting that Song of the South is never mentioned.
