More About Pollyanna
In this Walt Disney classic, which earned 14-year-old British actress Hayley Mills a special Honorary Academy Award for best Juvenile Performance, the imaginative, optimistic, and inquisitive orphan, Pollyanna Whittier comes to live with her cold, very wealthy Aunt Polly Harrington in 1912. Despite the many rules and roadblocks to happiness set up by her emotionally repressed relative, Pollyanna constantly searches for the small pleasures that brighten her life, and the lives of those around her. However, when something happens that finally threatens to kill Pollyanna's spirit for good, Pollyanna may need more than good will to overcome some harsh realities.
