Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best DVDs I've ever purchased June 4, 2002
Format:DVD
I love the film "Pollyanna" and have been waiting for the DVD for what seems like forever. I am very impressed by it! The picture and sound quality are amazing - so much better than the copy I have taped off TV from the late 80s. The film is presented in widescreen but I've realized not a lot goes on on the sides of the picture in this particular movie; in other words, you really don't get much more action with widescreen than you would have with the pan & scan video or a TV-taped version. However, this IS the film as the director intended it, and I think that's great. This DVD (actually two DVDs!) contains so much great stuff, I can't even list it all here. Let's just say amazon.com's list doesn't even get INTO what's on this DVD. There are so many little treasures, and something for everyone - Disney fanatics, Hayley Mills fans, movie freaks, and (naturally!) Pollyanna fans. My favorite features so far are the featurette on Pollyanna advertising, the one about how they restored the picture/film to make the colors how they should have been, and the one about Pollyanna merchandise. Plus, the audio commentary by Hayley Mills and the (now late) David Swift is insightful and interesting. I would also recommend the "Parent Trap" DVD for more of the same fun. The Disney co. really went all out for these DVDs and they are well worth the money. And if you've never seen the movie - it's an adorable family flick that I've loved for nearly 14 years. I hope you like it, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Disney and Hayley Mills Great March 13, 2005
Format:DVD
"Pollyanna" was the first and, in my opinion, the best of the first six movies that Hayley Mills starred in for Disney, the others being "The Parent Trap" in 1961, "In Search of the Castaways" in 1962, "Summer Magic" in 1963, "The Moon-Spinners" in 1964, and "That Darn Cat" in 1965. While all six of the movies are enjoyable family fare, this movie has a depth and complexity approached only in "Summer Magic."

In the first thirty minutes a wide-eyed Pollyanna is witness to the power her Aunt Polly wields in her town, named Harrington after her family. Pollyanna also quickly begins to learn that there are numerous stories in her town, which she learns throughout the movie piece by piece, ultimately giving her a power different from her aunt's.

This movie takes place in the early part of the twentieth century. Aunt Polly's genteel and Victorian behavior, even if a little stereotypical, has a feel to it that we often attribute to that era. At one point Aunt Polly all but uses the term "noblesse oblige," which is how wealthy people often considered their obligation to society. The clothing and sets all appear to be realistic, enhancing the period believability. The quality of the costumes and the sets is but one of the remarkable features of this movie.

The background stories provide a field of torment and pain to enhance Pollyanna's consistently "glad" outlook on the world. It is Pollyanna's attitude toward life that slowly changes the lives of everyone in Harrington, one person at a time. Even better, Pollyanna teaches those she meets that it is okay to feel good, and to make others feel good. Even more importantly, she teaches people to feel from the heart, which in many cases leads to love.

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 charming, wonderfully performed, BELIVEABLE film September 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A vast improvement on the cutesy, blatantly unrealistic and cliched book on which it's based, the Disney film version of Pollyanna has a very charming feel to it. The talented cast are all great, and really make you believe in them and forget they're all stereotypes, unlike in the book, which was the total opposite. Jane Wyman is quite good as Aunt Polly, and so are Agnes Moorhead, Adolphe Menjou, and espicially Karl Malden. Hayley Mills more than holds her own, delivering a very calm, subtle, BELIEVABLE performance. It's really obvious that she's made such a difference in the town because she interacts so well and effectively with everyone and does it throughout the movie, instead of chatting her mouth off about nothing and thinking that every cold act of her aunt's is an expression of love, like in the book. She stays with each person just long enough to subtly get her point across, but her presence lingers. She deserved her special Academy Award; her performance is excellent, astonishing for a 14-year-old who had only done one other film. She continued to enchant audiences throughout the '60's in other Disney films, all of which (that I've seen) are good and deserving of her talent. There, I've said enough. Get the movie; it's wonderful.
