Movie Reviews

Timeless, a true classic

"I loved this film as a child, and I suddenly felt like seeing it again so I ordered this Vault Disney edition. The movie has withstood the test of time very well, and retains the charm and magic I recall from the first time. Though it could easily have been too sugary to be realistic, the actors and director kept it on track. Haley Mills embodies Pollyanna so completely it's hard to believe she's acting at all! And the superb cast including Jane Wyman, Karl Malden and Agnes Moorhead make you long for the days when studios were able to create films with many "stars" instead of just one headliner.

This two-disc DVD is also a great value. The film looks crisp and beautiful despite its age, and the extras are fantastic. There are two 30+ minute featurettes, "Pollyanna - Making of a Masterpiece" and "Re-Creating Pollyanna's America," that go behind the scenes of filming and include interviews with Roy Disney, the director, Haley Mills, Kevin Corcoran and film historians. They also include clips of Walt Disney talking about the film. Both are excellent mini-documentaries and worth watching. Also included is the original theatrical short, "Nifty Nineties." Overall, a wonderful movie in a great DVD edition that I highly recommend! I think I need to go order "Swiss Family Robinson."
I'm still a little girl at heart!

"I'm 50 years old and grew up watching Haley Mills in many of Walt Disney movies and love them all, but my favorites are Pollyanna and The Parent Trap. They bring back happy, relaxing thoughts of my childhood and I can watch them over and over without getting tired of them. Any mother with little girls, or boys like I had, will love these old movies as well. I had a collection of most all of Haley Mills movies in VHS and am now starting over my collection with DVD's! You'll love Pollyanna - I promise!"
