Movie Friday: The Parent Trap

I enjoyed this film growing up, and I feel like it's time to start featuring some of these classic Disney movies.  So, here it is, The Parent Trap (1961 version).

So, here is what Wikipedia has to say on the subject:

"The Parent Trap (1961) is a Disney film.[1][2] It stars Hayley Mills, Maureen O'Hara and Brian Keith in a story about teenage twins and their divorced parents. The screenplay by the film's director David Swift was based upon the book Lottie and Lisa (Das Doppelte Lottchen) by Erich Kästner. Kastner derived his version from a Deanna Durbin film Three Smart Girls. The Parent Trap was nominated for two Academy Awards, was broadcast on television, saw three television sequels, was remade in 1998 with Lindsay Lohan, and has been released to VHS and DVD. The original film was Mills' second of six films for Disney."

Just a personal note...the remake is never as good as the original!

Have a great Friday.  Three day holiday weekend, take me away!

  1. Loved Hayley Mills, and also Patty Duke, who played a similar duel roll in her TV show.
