I saw Pollyanna as a kid, and again a few years ago. It's a nice movie, but I admit that it didn't stick much with me. I haven't heard of those other Disney films featuring Hayley Mills. I should check them out. Hopefully they're as good as The Parent Trap and That Darn Cat.

 

I saw 101 Dalmations as a kid and enjoyed it. A number of the classic animated Disney films had theatrical releases in the eighties and my parents took me and my siblings to see those movies. 101 Dalmations was one of those.

101 DALMATIANS and THE LOVE BUG. The latter is especially fun, being made after Uncle Walt's death and the studio was trying its best to be contemporary of the changing times. Note that Buddy Hackett's character had just been to Nepal like the Fab Four and he is the first who can communicate with a "Beetle".

I LOVE The Parent Trap. I was very young when I first watched it, but it continued to be a staple in my household haha. I think my all-time favorite Hayley Mills one was Pollyanna (1960). I was a little obsessed lol. I just realized last year after doing some research, that along with Parent Trap, Pollyanna, That Darn Cat, Hayley also did Summer Magic, In Search of the Castaways, and Moon-Spinners for Disney in the 60s as well. Busy kid.

There are two Disney films from the sixties which I really enjoy:

 

The Parent Trap

 

and

 

That Darn Cat.

 

Any other fans of these two films? A big thanks to Hayley Mills (star of both movies) for doing such a great job, especially at playing two characters in The Parent Trap.
