TREASURE ISLAND
April 23, 2013  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
This is the 1950 Disney version of the classic Robert Louis Stevenson story. Not the best of movies, or most polished, certainly – but if you saw it as a kid, wow, was it enthralling. Maybe, to very young eyes today, it still is. A pirate and a parrot? How do you beat it? Robert Newton steals the show, pirate-like, as Long John Silver. Parents, beware: This film is rated Aaargh!
