Product Description

Hayley Mills is the two-fer star of this original version of the 1961 Disney comedy. The young actress plays twin sisters originally unaware of each others' existence and who later determine to bring their divorced parents together again by secretly trading places. Brian Keith and Maureen O'Hara bring some adult legitimacy to their roles as the wary parents, Joanna Barnes is a good sport as dad's new and despised girlfriend, and director David Swift makes the whole production sprightly, warm, and fun. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must See! June 9 2004
Format:DVD
I am a fan of Disney movies, and this is on my list of favorites. Nothing can beat this original!
Hayley Mills plays two different roles in the movie...as a set of twins separated at birth. It's similar to a Prince and the Pauper type story, but neither child is necessarily poor or living a bad life. One sister lives in California with her dad and the other lives in Boston with her mom. They find out that they are related only because they HATE each other at camp and get banished to share a room for the rest of camp. Then they make it their mission to get the parents back together and find out why they were separated in the first place! It's comical and touching. Probably very far fetched, which makes it all the more fun to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's watch this movie, yeah, yeah, yeah! March 17 2004
Format:DVD
I love this movie so much that it's surprised me that I've taken so long to review it. But this movie is GREAT!
It's about two girls, Susan Evers and Sharon Mckendrick, who meet at summer camp, and are shocked and surprised to find out that not counting their hairstyles, they look exactly alike! The initial curiosity leads to feuding and the girl's wind up in an isolation tent alone...for the rest of the summer.
Rain, wind, and an open window eventually break the ice, and Susan and Sharon begin to get to know each other. But when Sharon shows Susan a picture of her mother, Susan instantly recognizes it as her mother, and the girls discover that they are SISTERS!!!!!!!
To make a long story short, Susan and Sharon switch places in a wild attempt to get their parents back together. But their plans are nearly crashed when their dad announces his intent to marry a vain, uppity lady named Vicky. Can Susan and Sharon rally together and get their parents back together before something awful happens? Watch this exciting movie starring the adorable Hayley Mills as Susan and Sharon, to find out!
Hayley Mills has got to be one of my favorite actresses, and this has got to be the best film ever. She is just so good!
The DVD is just filled with extras, and if you want to see another DVD with the same amount of extras, see 'Pollyanna', another one of Hayley Mills movies, which is also awesome.
A couple years ago Disney made a remake of the Parent Trap, and although the special effects are probably much better, you can't reproduce the same charm that Hayley Mills gave us when this movie first came out. The original is always the best!
Bottom line: See this movie, and I promise you, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A DISNEY CLASSIC Nov. 26 2002
Format:DVD
THIS FILM IS A DISNEY CLASSIC, AND IT HAS FINALLY RECIEVED THE TREATMENT THAT IT SO RIGHTFULLY DESERVES. THIS IS A 2-DVD SET WITH MANY EXTRAS FOR ALL OF US TO ENJOY.
UNEQUALED BY THE REMAKE OF THE SAME TITLE, THIS MOVIE REALLY SHINES.
IT IS SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES OF THE FAMILY AND WILL BE TREASURED FOR MANY YEARS TO COME!
THANKS DISNEY FOR RELEASING THIS FILM AND FOR RECOGNIZING IT AS A "CLASSIC."
HAYLEY MILLS IS VERY CHARMING IN THIS FILM AND BOTH BRIAN KEITH AND MAUREEN O'HARA DID A FANTASTIC JOB AS WELL AS THE PARENTS!!!
THIS IS A GREAT MOVIE THAT SHOULD BE SEEN AND ENJOYED BY ALL!!!
MOVIES LIKE THIS ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN NOW-A-DAYS, SO TREASURE IT FOR JUST WHAT IT IS- AN ENJOYABLE FAMILY FILM!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming and Fun May 5 2002
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
All ages can enjoy this family film about identical twins (played by Hayley Mills) who try to reunite their parents. Hayley Mills shines in the dual role and the trick photography is great. O'Hara and Keith are both appealing as the divorced parents. The outdoor scenery is beautiful. The three stars make this Disney movie a classic you'll want to see again and again.

The Origonal Parent trap is by far the best! Haley Mills outshines the second version of The Parent Trap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Special features are wonderful June 29 2004
By L.M.W.
Format:DVD
Of course this is a wonderful Disney family film. I'm in my twenties, and I can remember watching this movie since I was a toddler. Since I'm sure you know how great the movie is and can read other reviews for that, I'll concentrate on the special features of this DVD, some of which aren't even mentioned above.
• "Caught in the Act: The Making of the Parent Trap" is a good documentary (about 30 minutes), including interviews with Hayley Mills, Maureen O'Hara, director David Swift, Joanna Barnes, and more. It provides a lot of background details on how the idea for the film came about, selecting the cast, fine-tuning the screenplay, etc.
• "Disney Legend: Hayley Mills" is a 25-minute feature all about Hayley, and it's quite good. It includes photos and home movies from her childhood as well as interviews with Hayley, Maureen O'Hara, Dean Jones, Kevin Corcoran, David Swift, Nancy Olson, and others she worked with at Disney. Hayley talks about her family, her experiences at Disney, and her departure from that Disney image in the late '60s.
• "Seeing Double" is a short feature on the split-screen technology that allowed viewers to see two images of Hayley Mills side by side at once. This technology was quite innovative and experimental at the time, but it worked beautifully.
• The Sherman Brothers featurette is a short but interesting bit of facts and trivia on two men who wrote songs for many memorable Disney films, including "Mary Poppins" and "The Parent Trap."
• "Lost Treasures: Who's the Twin?" is an interesting feature about Susan Henning, the girl who played the double for Hayley Mills in the film (in scenes with the camera over her shoulder or to her back).

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Movie, A Bit Dated, But One Thing:...
The movie's very entertaining on its merits, despite being a tad dated in the new millenium. However, in the perspective of the 60's, quite well done. Read more
