From the Vaults is dedicated to favorite films created by Disney that the D23 Team is excited to share on the big screen once again. Treasure Island, based on the legendary book by Robert Louis Stevenson, will be presented in the state-of-the-art, 400-seat, Studio Theatre.
Cited as “one of Disney’s all-time-best live-action films” by popular film historian Leonard Maltin, Treasure Island is noteworthy as being Walt Disney’s first completely live-action feature-length movie and the first screen adaptation of the story produced in color.
Treasure Island stars young Disney screen veteran Bobby Driscoll (Song of the South, So Dear to My Heart) and Disney Legend Robert Newton in his most famous screen role, as Long John Silver. Director Bryon Haskin came to the film with impressive credentials—he served as cinematographer on two other classic seafaring adventure films—Captain Blood (1935) and The Sea Wolf (1945). Treasure Island was the first of four live-action films made in England by Walt Disney in the early 1950s, due to studio funds being frozen in Europe during the post-World War II economy.
When young Jim Hawkins finds himself in possession of a treasure map, he sets sail with his friends for Treasure Island—along with Long John Silver! Silver plans a mutiny but when it fails, he takes off with Jim in tow in search of the precious catch.
