The summer is almost over, but Turner Classic Movies is going to help you transition to the fall season. Pirates, Jodie Foster, and a Halloween themed Disney animated short are featured in the next installment of Treasures from the Disney Vault. Turner Classic Movies is again proud to present Treasures from the Disney Vault on Monday, September 11 starting at 8pm.
If you’re a fan of pirates, included in the schedule is Swiss Family Robinson. A film about a Swiss family who must survive being shipwrecked on a deserted island after being chased by pirates into a storm. Also check out Blackbeard’s Ghost, a movie starring Dean Jones as a track coach who after accidentally reciting some magic words, summons the ghost of the dreaded pirate Blackbeard.
If you’re a fan of Jodie Foster, then you’re in luck. The night ends with back to back Jodie Foster films. In Freaky Friday, Jodie plays a teenaged girl who switches personalities with her mother and they have to live each other’s lives on one strange Friday. In Candleshoe, Jodie plays a young girl who must follow the clues to find an hidden treasure in order to save the English estate, Candleshoe, from a small time crook.
To ease us into the Halloween season, TCM treats us with the classic Disney animated short film, Lonesome Ghosts. Four bored ghosts in a haunted house who’ve scared everyone away call up Ghost Hunters Mickey, Donald, and Goofy in hopes to have a little fun scaring them off.
