Old Movies......

Did you ever have an afternoon that was rainy and blah? Well, yesterday was one of those days. So I got out the old movies and selected two Disney films. Pollyanna is a little girl that brings gladness to a town that is pretty much controlled by her aunt, played by Jane Wyman; with whom she is sent to live with. Richard Egan stars as Jane Wyman's love interest. It's an amazing story that I would recommend watching. It came out in 1960 but is just as good today as it was back then. It is one of those films you can watch over and over again.

Parent Trap came out the next year. Both films star Haley Mills and she plays the part of both twins.  Brian Keith and Maureen O'Hara play the twins divorced parents. In Parent Trap, twin girls are separated at a year old. Each parent takes one of the girls. One lives in California and the other in Boston. The girls meet at Summer Camp and figure out, they are twins. From there, the conniving twins do everything they can to get their parents back together. To complicate things, their Father is engaged to be married. Believe me, the twins are very resourceful and imaginative. It is fun to see how they manipulate and sabotage their Father's engagement. It was a very fun afternoon watching these two movies from the past.
Till next time.....
