The Parent Trap with Hayley Mills


I love this 1961 Disney movie. It's a lovely Valentines Day treat. The Parent Trap stars beautiful Maureen O'Hara, handsome Brian Keith and gives us a double helping of Hayley Mills who plays twin sisters. The movie may be sugary sweet, but it is a real tribute to children, parenthood and love.

Brian Keith (Mitch Evers) and Maureen O'Hara (Maggie McKendrick) divorced when their twin daughters were very young. Each took a child--one parent lives free and open California style (he), the other lives in stiff Bostonian style (she). Their children reflect their respective parents lifestyle. By a fluke the girls end up in the same summer camp, of course they (Sharon and Susan) meet; and that's when the fun begins. After initially disliking each other, they find they have more in common than their disturbing identical looks. Once connected, they decide that their parents must be reunited. However, neither is counting on papa Brian Keith having a gold-digging sweetheart (Joanna Barnes) and her greedy mother lurking about. Never mind, the girls soon take care of that. The Parent Trap has some hilarious moments. Some are laugh out loud funny. Just watch Leo G. Carroll as Reverend Dr. Mosby.

The movie has a superb cast, Una Merkel is Verbena, Mitch's very wise and knowing housekeeper, Cathleen Nesbitt and Charles Ruggles are the wonderful and doting grandparents. John Mills appears briefly as Mitch's golf caddy.

I was happy to see that Amazon has The Parent Trap which was released on DVD in 2002.
