Product Description

Amazon.ca

Optimism shines in this classic 1960 Disney film starring Hayley Mills. When the newly orphaned Pollyanna comes to live with her wealthy aunt in Harrington Town, life looks promising. Despite her aunt's insistence on propriety and modesty, Pollyanna's cheerful, optimistic ways spread throughout the town--converting even a cantankerous recluse and a whining hypochondriac. Only Aunt Polly has trouble welcoming her young niece into her heart. In a clash between the townspeople and Aunt Polly over local politics, it's Pollyanna's influence that helps individual townspeople find the inner strength to stand up for their own beliefs. When Pollyanna is involved in a serious accident, Aunt Polly finally realizes how much she loves her niece. Can Aunt Polly and the entire town somehow restore Polly's optimism and ensure a full recovery? Pollyanna is wholesome entertainment that will leave the entire family eager to play the "glad game." --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldy But Goody June 7 2004
Format:DVD
I grew up watching Pollyanna, so I decided that I HAD to have it for my collection. I just re-watched it yesterday and remembered why it was one of my favorites.
Pollyanna's parents die and she must go live with her rich aunt Polly. Pollyanna is so optimistic, but everyone in Harrington Town is so pessimistic and it's all because of strict aunt Polly. Pollyanna tries to turn the town around by teaching them the glad game - basically the idea of being optimistic. It's a cute story and teaches a good lesson.
My only complaint - for a Disney movie it is LONG! 2 hours and 15 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a darling movie! Aug. 3 2002
Format:DVD
This movie is so good! I thought no movie could be better than those of Shirley Temple, and I was always hoping a film similar to Heidi would be released. Luckily I found "Pollyanna" on DVD. Wow! I sort of pushed my Shirley Temple gift set near the back and brought forth my new Vault Disney DVD collection. Pollyanna is very similar to Heidi and I recommend it to fans of that movie. This movie is about a little orphan girl-Pollyanna-who is sent to live with her strict aunt. Everyone in the town is always grumpy, but Pollyanna teaches them her "glad game" and makes everyone lovable and cheerful. Only at the end of the movie when a terrible tragedy takes place, does everyone realise how much they appreciate Pollyanna. A wonderful family film that isn't only for children, but for adults too. The DVD comes with lots of documentaries, interviews, pictures, and some music too! Even a commentary! Trust me, fans of Shirley Temple may also appreciate Hayley Mills too!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Glad Movie March 22 2004
Format:DVD
My mom picked up this movie at our library because we didn't have anything to watch and it looked interesting. Well, it was more than interesting, it was fantastic!
Hayley Mills was awesome as Pollyanna, and Jane Wyman, Nancy Olsen, and Richard Egan were all very well cast and played their parts beautifully.
It was in this movie, incidentally that Hayley Mills made her debut into Disney movies, and she went on to make other wonderful movies for Disney, the most memorable one, "The Parent Trap" (See my review for that movie also!)
The DVD has literally millions of extras, including a documentary, commentary with Hayley Mills and director David Swift, and sound tracks of Hayley singing the 'The Glad Song,' which unfortunately is not in the movie.
You will not be disappointed if you see this fantastic movie. It's a timeless classic that will never grow old.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Disney DVD! March 18 2003
Format:DVD
This is what DisneyDVD should be!
Not only is this classic live-action Disney film beautifully restored and brought to DVD format, the "Vault Disney Collection" format has created a modern masterpiece, combining 21st Century technology with timeless Disney storytelling.
Disc One includes the restored film of "Pollyanna", along with audio commentary from Hayley Mills and director David Swift.
In particular, Disc Two is worth the full price of admission for this set. "Pollyanna: Making of a Masterpiece" does a wonderful job of revealing Walt Disney's soft spot for nostalgia and the memories of youth. Walt Disney was much more than a "brand name". He was a respected member of his community and was devoted to a family he truly cherished. Also included here is "Re-creating Pollyanna's America"; and "1912". Providing the background for this important story is half the fun of this DVD. The "Lost Treasures" section includes Walt Disney's original TV introductions, which set him apart as television's most beloved personality in the 1950's and 60's. Also included are Production Archives for the film, and the "1960 Disney Studio Album" (video scrapbook) combine for an unforgettable DVD experience.
Congratulations to those responsible for creating the "Vault Disney Collection" DVDs. Walt would be proud!

4.0 out of 5 stars What a glad movie March 7 2003
Format:DVD
I was a bit nervous seeing this movie as I was scared it was going to live up to it's title and be way too sugary sweet. I was pleasnatly surprised and even moved afterwards.
Pollyanna is a delightful movie that lifts the spirits and provides many life lessons without ever being preachy or feeling like a school lesson. I was genuinely entertained and even a bit surprised at the bold steps the movie takes. Would you think this movie features a preacher most everyone fears, or has a bittersweet ending? I thought not. Well there's plenty more here to surprise you. Just give it a chance.
About the only thing I fault the movie for is being a bit too long. Some scenes just seem to go on and on, but that's what chapter stops and the fast forward button are for.
As for the DVD presentation, it's terrific. The movie looks and sounds stunning plus the second disc is just jammed packed with extra material. I was excited to listen to the commentary, but sadly it's as sugary and full of fake emotion as the movie is not. Still the other bonuses are well worth the extra bucks and there will probably never be a better presentation of Pollyanna.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true Rainbow making Movie! Oct. 8 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I watched this film when I was eight years old and, I truly loved it right from the start. Sadly By the age of eight I lost this movie and I began to hate it! I guess I was to foolish and blind folded to realise what the whole point is. I completely took this movie out of my Disney Collection at home. Then several years later I turned Twelve. I started thinking, and I said to myself, " I want to see Pollyanna," and I kept saying that over and over. Then I was walking along in Wal*Mart and I went over to the electronics and, I was looking at the Vault Disney Collections. And guess what, I saw Pollyanna! The movie cost $, but it was worth far more than that. When I got home I watched it again, and again and, it will always have a place in my heart. I realised that I was a foolish little child, with no feelings. I'm so glad that I found this movie and you will be to. So if you were once a foolish little child and you gave up on this film, give it a second chance and you will fall in love with it all over again. As I said this is a true Rainbow Making Movie!

A tear jerker and old fashioned, but a good story nonetheless. A very positive message. Too sad for very young children.
