Hayley Mills received a special Academy Award(R) for her performance as Pollyanna in this timeless Walt Disney tapestry of small-town Americana. Here you'll meet Pollyanna, the orphan who brings sunshine into the lives of everyone she meets. But her Aunt Polly (Jane Wyman) is too concerned with appearances, propriety, and local politics to appreciate her effervescent niece. It isn't until the town almost loses their "Glad Girl" that Aunt Polly realizes the power of love and lightheartedness. Featuring an impressive all-star cast and a story filled with fun, laughter, and tears, POLLYANNA will inspire your entire family and prove that the art of positive thinking is just as delightful today as it was at the turn of the century!
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 HoriuchiSee all Product Description

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.
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.
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!
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.
