The 22 Greatest Classic Live-Action Disney Movies

Pre-1990s live action Disney movies were where it was AT, if you know what I'm talking about (cats).

Posted on

1. Treasure Island - 1950 / Via

Starring: Bobby Driscoll, Robert Newton

Disney's first complete live-action movie, and an instant classic. Just as importantly, it led to the creation of "Muppet Treasure Island", the best muppet movie ever made.

5. Swiss Family Robinson - 1960 / Via

Starring: John Mills, James MacArthur, Tommy Kirk, Janet Munro

Tommy Kirk really did a ton of old Disney movies didn't he? Swiss Family Robinson was the action-packed story of a ship-wrecked family and their pet monkey fighting pirates. Classic.

9. The Parent Trap - 1961 / Via

Starring: Hayley Mills (x2), Maureen O'Hara, Brian Keith

Cinema great Maureen O'Hara and Disney staple Hayley Mills were fantastic in the Disney original that led to Lindsay Lohan's finest film.

16. Escape to Witch Mountain - 1975 / Via

Starring: Eddie Albert, Kim Richards, Ray Milliand

Alien twins with special powers go on an adventure in an RV. Alas, the Rock is not in this version, which is the only barrier from it being perfect.
