The Parent Trap (1961)


Pop's love affair is a 3-ring circus!

Hayley Mills plays twins who, unknown to their divorced parents, meet at a summer camp. Products of single parent households, they switch places (surprise!) so as to meet the parent they never knew, and then contrive to reunite them. This reunites child star Mills with her Pollyanna director David Swift.

  • Surprisingly, the film is delightful-mostly because of 15-year-old Hayley Mills, the blonde button nose who played the endearing delinquent in Tiger Bay. Full Review

  • David Swift, whose writing, direction and appreciation of young Hayley Mills' natural histrionic resources contributed so much to Pollyanna, repeats the three-ply effort on this excursion, with similar success. Full Review
