Product Description

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!|This was Hayley Mills' first film for Disney, and she immediately became the Studio's newest star. She won an Academy Award(R) for the most outstanding juvenile performance of 1960.|The film was based on the 1913 book by Eleanor H. Porter. With a then lavish $2.5 million budget, director David Swift gathered a crew and cast unlike any other Disney live-action feature. Disney set decorator Emile Kuri was on hand but outsiders Walter Plunkett (costumes), Russell Harlan (cinematographers), and art directors Carroll Clark and Robert Clatworthy came from established careers at other studios.|To find a house to use as the residence of Aunt Polly, Walt Disney had to go far from his studio in Burbank. An ideal house was found in Santa Rosa, near Napa Valley. It occupied a full block in the center of town and was surrounded by spacious lawns and gardens. It was built in 1877 as a replica of an old Natchez, Mississippi, antebellum house. The vintage train station and water hole were also filmed in Santa Rosa, but the interiors were completed at the Disney Studio.

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

I saw this movie when it came out, but don't remember any of it. It was nice to see it again after 50 years, lots of 'feel good' moments! The story is much better than the usual Disney fare, which I find kind of frustrating and adversarial. This movie is far too happy to be frustrating! And the quality is excellent, colors are vibrant, sound is clear. I found the church scenes to be the only disturbing thing, with the screaming preacher, but that's what the mute button is for! And if you're the emotional type, don't forget the Kleenex for the ending!

This movie will take you to a happy place!

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.

Just as I remember from my own childhood. This is a touching movie about the effects of one little girl's positive outlook on life in a town where the people don't feel happy in general.

It's a period film, the costumes are fantastic. Not a musical, but definitely worth the watch. This is the kind of movie you can rest easy letting your children watch, in my opinion, without worrying about something awful happening on the screen when you have to get up to answer the door or something.

Bring some kleenex.

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!

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.
