Tune in to TCM: The Age of Believing

As part of their month long salute to "Family Classics" (every Sunday in December), Turner Classic Movies will presents the new documentary The Age of Believing: The Disney Live-Action Classics tomorrow night.

Hosted by Angela Lansbury (of Bedknobs and Broomsticks fame), the TCM original takes a look at how the Disney Studio "ventured beyond its animation legacy to develop non-animated family fare" such as Treasure Island, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Shaggy Dog, Swiss Family Robinson, Old Yeller, Pollyanna, The Absent-Minded Professor, The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday and many more.

The special will also feature interviews with such Disney faves as Tim Conway (The Apple Dumpling Gang), Dean Jones (That Darn Cat), Michele Lee (The Love Bug), Kim Richards (Escape to Witch Mountain), Dick Van Dyke (Mary Poppins) and Lesley Ann Warren (The Happiest Millionaire), plus Poppins' Academy Award-winning songwriter Richard M. Sherman, Roy E. Disney and film historian Leonard Maltin.

The Age of Believing will also air on December 21 and 28.
