Trailer Tuesday: The Rescuers

Walt Disney’s The Rescuers. Summer, 1977.

Walt Disney Productions released The Rescuers in June of 1977. The animated film stars Bob Newhart and Eva Gabor as a pair of mice named Bernard and Miss Bianca (respectively). These helpful rodents are part of the “Rescue Aid Society” and they attempt to save a human orphan girl called Penny (Michelle Stacy) from the evil Madame Medusa (Geraldine Page).

The Rescuers was something of a return to form for the Disney organization with the movie grabbing solid reviews and a very respectable 1977 box office take of $48 million. Enjoy the TV trailer below. *Note that I normally post the theatrical trailer but I couldn’t scrounge up a good version.
