Release year: 1960
Studio: Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment
Rated: G

Here you'll meet Pollyanna (Hayley Mills), 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.

It's been a long time since I've seen Pollyanna. I do remember some of it. It's a very cutesy movie where the child knows better than the adults. Pollyanna has recently been orphaned and goes to live with her aunt in a new environment. Pollyanna is an extra perky look-on-the-bright-side kind of a kid. The aunt is a stuffy rich know-it-all. Pollyanna goes around the town meeting everyone with a smile of her face even the old grump that no one has talked to in years. Pollyanna optimism starts to wane after an accident but the aunt gets a revelation that if she had a better attitude things would be better. All is good in the end. A feel good movie to watch with the kiddies.
