A film with great charm, filmed well and enhanced by performances by the likes of Kenneth Cranham the embittered Mr Pendleton , and Aden Gillett, the doctor.
Pollyanna herself is played by newcomer Georgina Terry, and I hope we see more of her. Looking for something to watch?

Edit Did You Know? Trivia Writer and director David Swift stated in the commentary that the townsfolk of Harrington were mostly the citizens of Santa Rosa, California, the location of many exteriors.
They were dressed in period costumes and enjoyed appearing in the crowd scenes, such as the dramatic climax when the whole population of Harrington came to visit Pollyanna at the big house and see her off at the train station.
Goofs After a orphanage meeting at the Harrington house one mentions, "This is not a big town like Cleveland," suggesting that the setting is Ohio.
Ohio doesn't have the hills or mountains seen in the movie. Quotes Nancy Furman : I think it might be better if you didn't mention the ice cream to your aunt.
Pollyanna : My father taught me never to tell a lie. Nancy Furman : Oh, Pollyanna, it wouldn't be telling a lie. But there's no reason to bring up the subject if it isn't mentioned.
About Cousin Fred, I mean. Pollyanna : I like your Cousin Fred. Very much. Nancy Furman : Oh, he's all right, I guess. Pollyanna : He's very handsome, and he has a nice smile.

In her prime, she was a lovely young woman but over the years she has become stern and arrogant and likes to be alone. They hope that over time she will bring joy and laughter back to what was once a house full of love and happy families.
Pollyanna was written in by Eleanor H. This is because little Pollyanna named after her two aunts Polly and Anna is always happy and sees the best in people.
Even though Pollyanna has been through so much hardship and heartache she is always upbeat and brings joy to the townsfolk who come to adore her.
I never read this book as a child, though I had known of it and had seen it about. Most likely because I tended to stay away from the classics as a child and unfortunately, I have a feeling even today that children prefer newer books than classics like this, which is a shame as they are really missing out.
As classics go this was surprisingly easy to read. The language is clear and mainly written using words we use today, except for sometimes when Pollyanna spoke.
This is a beautiful book that I really enjoyed. The words just flowed and the plot was so vivid and I felt like I had travelled back in time. View all 8 comments.
Oct 06, Julie rated it really liked it Shelves: in-the-middle , vermont. Pollyanna is an interesting book. It was published only four years after Anne of Green Gables , and both stories have a similar storyline: a plucky, young girl of eleven or so is orphaned and has nowhere to go.
Both Pollyanna and Anne struggle with their appearance and both are received in a lackluster way, by new caregivers who aren't sure they really want them.
Both girls also work their magic by having a sort of unflagging optimism that turns the stingy hearts of others around them.
But, after a Pollyanna is an interesting book. There are some differences in the storylines. The middle of the story finally won us over, and we stopped making comparisons to Anne , but then the tidy ending irked me and we settled on a 3.

I was only eight years old when I read this book. Consequently, I bought this message hook, line and sinker. How do you do it? Being positive all the time is like crushing a piece inside of you.

Written April 2, 4. Porter from Oddly enough, I think I might like this young-girl book even more now as an grownup than as a girl long ago.
These characters and especially this sweet sunshine girl Pollyanna made me just smiling in nearly six hours. Absolutely charming Written April 2, 4.
Absolutely charming and lovely. I wish I, myself, could remember and live after Pollyanna's "Glad Game" strategy every 'cloudy' day.
If we followed her idea would probably life and everyday life become so much more fun for everyone. Pollyanna Whittier is a young orphan who goes to live in Beldingsville, Vermont , with her spinster Aunt Polly.
Unfortunately doesn't Miss Polly want to take in young Pollyanna, but feels it is her duty to her late sister. It doesn't start that well But Pollyanna is a brave little girl and her philosophy of life is what she calls The Glad Game , she just has to find something to be glad about in every situation.

A delightful read. Pollyanna likes to play the glad game. This was written in and one of the interesting things is that very concept is a healing concept.
It's about shifting our perspective from seeing the wrong, to finding something to be glad about. Gratitude is quite a powerful tool and being positive can bring our lives ease.
We had several classes discussing helping people shift their perspective like this to help them heal. From this idea comes the word being a Pollyanna, a goody-goo A delightful read.
From this idea comes the word being a Pollyanna, a goody-goody or an overly optimistic person. Still, there are many studies that have shown that people with an optimistic outlook on life live longer, healthier lives.
One of my absolute favorite books is Heidi. I adore that story. I love that bright sunny child. I love the troupe or Archetype of the sunny child that changes the lives of everyone around them.
Pollyanna did touch me reading this. I really enjoyed it. When I am in my good place and I'm not listening to the inside negative wounds, I can very much have this sunny positive outlook and people tell me that I radiate this and it boosts their mood.
I'm afraid since school got so rough that I don't feel like I have had that in quite some time. So, I do love reading this story. She brightened my heart.
I need to find my way back here, because it makes me feel balanced in this place. While I read this, my brother got Disney plus and so I watched the movie of Pollyanna.
The two have similarities, of course, and they are also very different. I have to say that I think each one, the book and the movie, have the strengthens and weaknesses and both do some things better than the other.
The movie did a better job of showing how Pollyanna affected the town than the book and the book did a better job with the Aunt Polly and their relationship and how Pollyanna melted her heart.
I love the accident better in the movie than the book. It is glossed over, which is ok. Pollyanna is compared to a prism in this story and it's wonderful.
She takes the sunlight and makes it sparkle into all the beautiful colors of the rainbow. I think it's a beautiful metaphor.
She also is the sunshine that shines into other people and reminds them of all the many colors in life that get forgotten.
I think the simplicity of the glad game is the best way to play. It has to be the simplicity of a child. Pollyanna has some very hard knocks in life.
Both her parents die and she must move in with a bitter old Aunt who shoves her away in the stuffy attic.
The entire town is mostly filled with sourpusses and she comes in and flips the script on the whole town.
It's a beautiful story. I also appreciate how Pollyanna can be around these horribly grumpy people and not let them get her down or put her off.
Again and again the adults try and scare her off and she keeps shining her light. That is something I have a hard time doing.
When someone is out of sorts, I usually try and disappear, I don't keep shining light. I have a lot to learn from Pollyanna. I cried in both the movie and the book.
It brought me to tears. I was touched by the outpouring of love from the townspeople to Pollyanna. I can't believe I haven't read this yet and I'm so glad I did read it.
For me and who I am, this is a must read and I need it for my library. PS I am getting an newer phone than I have and I am wanting to start a little booktube channel, nothing fancy, just talking books and I'm sure this will have to make an appearance.
Maybe the niece and nephew will come on. The niece wants to make a barbie video, so who knows. I might procrastinate and it will never happen, or it might happen.
I can't say. I will have to get over my camera shyness. View all 6 comments. When this first came out as a movie, my father took me to see it, just the two of us — a rare event.
I loved the simplicity of her view of life, in general, and particularly in finding joy in the smallest things, echoing the teachings of her recently passed father, who was a minister.

I didn't really go into this book with any expectations. I've never seen the movie, I knew nothing of the plot, but I was intrigued to read a book written for young readers so long ago.
I am happy to report that this book was delightful.

I was smiling the whole time I read it, and was surprised and impressed how many of the themes Pollyanna speaks to being happy for what you've got, sending money away to people far away rather than helping those right in front of you for the sake of that number being in the reports, etc were still relevant today.
I was heartbroken and completely surprised about the twist near the end, but was still so thrilled with the positive message that stayed throughout the book.
Pollyanna unwaveringly assumed the best of people, which is something very few do. It was so powerful, seeing how the grownups in this book reacted to Pollyanna falsely assuming their intentions were usually better than they were.
What a great little book. Even if Pollyanna seemed larger than life sometimes.. I don't think it was a bad thing. I know I'll be playing the glad game long after putting this book down.

What have I been missing all these years! As a child I grew up on the Disney movie of "Pollyanna" and thought it was just wonderful.
I was never introduced to the "classics" or even realized that Pollyanna was a book turned into a movie. It soon became apparent that this was another true o the test of time classics that takes you through all the emotions of a true clssic!
M Wow! My children fell in love with sweet litle Polyanna and we all cried and laughed along with her and for her! My children each had such a touching emotional growth of faith, compassion and empathy through this reading that I wish all children had a mommy to read this story to them!
Read this one to your chidren no matter their age and share the beauty of real life! Pollyanna, read when I was in elementary school, is one of the books that helped to form my character.
The concept of looking for the good in everything, even in events or people that showed no obvious goodness appeared, to my young mind, both a good idea and a challenge.
First in imitation and later as habit I began to "look for the good. The characteristic in me Pollyanna, read when I was in elementary school, is one of the books that helped to form my character.
The characteristic in me that she chose to describe was my propensity to find the shining moment s in each day and to hold onto them.
I know I read this as a kid, but the only thing I could remember was the dang calf's foot jelly It's ok for what it is.
Now here's Petty Betty - one of the character's speech patterns annoyed the heck out of me. The maid, Nancy, had a habit of repeating her last sentence.
It was, it was. Nov 04, Carol rated it really liked it Shelves: books-i-own. My teen daughter and I read this on the way to a soccer tournament and it was a great conversation starter on so many topics - one's approach to life and "bad" events or circumstances, communication styles, charitable endeavors, gender roles, and on and on.
I'm sorry I didn't pick up Pollyanna until now, but enjoyed it immensely and was glad to have read it and finished it right before Thanksgiving!

This is a classic Americans novel which written by Eleanor H. Since this is a classic novel, so the conflict and the plot of this novel is really naturally come.
Although the problem is not too complicated, but we could be carried in the story. The book's success led to Porter soon writing a sequel, Pollyanna Grows Up Reece, published in Due to the book's fame, "Pollyanna" has become a byword for someone who — like the title character — has an unfailingly optimistic outlook;  a subconscious bias towards the positive is often described as the Pollyanna principle.
Despite the current common use of the term to mean 'excessively cheerful', Pollyanna and her father played the glad game as a method of coping with the real difficulties and sorrows that, along with luck and joy, shape every life.
Pollyanna has been adapted for film several times. Some of the best known are the version starring Mary Pickford , and Disney 's version starring child actress Hayley Mills , who won a special Oscar for the role.
The title character is Pollyanna Whittier, an eleven-year-old orphan  who goes to live in the fictional town of Beldingsville, Vermont , with her wealthy but stern and cold spinster Aunt Polly, who does not want to take in Pollyanna but feels it is her duty to her late sister.
Pollyanna's philosophy of life centers on what she calls "The Glad Game," an optimistic and positive attitude she learned from her father.
The game consists of finding something to be glad about in every situation, no matter how bleak it may be. It originated in an incident one Christmas when Pollyanna, who was hoping for a doll in the missionary barrel, found only a pair of crutches inside.
Making the game up on the spot, Pollyanna's father taught her to look at the good side of things—in this case, to be glad about the crutches because she did not need to use them.
With this philosophy, and her own sunny personality and sincere, sympathetic soul, Pollyanna brings so much gladness to her aunt's dispirited New England town that she transforms it into a pleasant place to live.
The Glad Game shields her from her aunt's stern attitude: when Aunt Polly puts her in a stuffy attic room without carpets or pictures, she exults at the beautiful view from the high window; when she tries to "punish" her niece for being late to dinner by sentencing her to a meal of bread and milk in the kitchen with the servant Nancy, Pollyanna thanks her rapturously because she likes bread and milk, and she likes Nancy.
Soon Pollyanna teaches some of Beldingsville's most troubled inhabitants to "play the game" as well, from a querulous invalid named Mrs. Snow to a miserly bachelor, Mr.
Pendleton, who lives all alone in a cluttered mansion. Aunt Polly, too—finding herself helpless before Pollyanna's buoyant refusal to be downcast—gradually begins to thaw, although she resists the Glad Game longer than anyone else.
Eventually, however, even Pollyanna's robust optimism is put to the test when she is struck by a car and loses the use of her legs.
At first she does not realize the seriousness of her situation, but her spirits plummet when she is told what happened to her. After that, she lies in bed, unable to find anything to be glad about.
Then the townspeople begin calling at Aunt Polly's house, eager to let Pollyanna know how much her encouragement has improved their lives; and Pollyanna decides she can still be glad that she at least has had her legs.
The novel ends with Aunt Polly marrying her former lover Dr. Chilton and Pollyanna being sent to a hospital where she learns to walk again and is able to appreciate the use of her legs far more as a result of being temporarily disabled and unable to walk well.
The quote "When you look for the bad in mankind expecting to find it, you surely will" appears in the Disney version , where it is attributed to Abraham Lincoln.
However, the original quote "When you look for the bad, expecting it, you will get it" is actually from the book, where it appears without attribution.
As a result of the novel's success, the adjective "Pollyannaish" and the noun "Pollyannaism"  became popular terms for a personality type characterised by irrepressible optimism evident in the face of even the most adverse or discouraging of circumstances.
The word "pollyanna" may also be used colloquially to denote a holiday gift exchange more typically known as Secret Santa , especially in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas.
Pollyanna is still available in reprint editions. Author Jerome Jerry Griswold analysed Pollyanna together with juvenile 'heroes' in several well-known children's books, e.
With reference to the Theory of the Three Lives of the Child Hero , he posits that, in Pollyanna , clear oedipal tensions exist, albeit in disguised or projected forms, in the relationships between the child, her Aunt and the principal male adult characters, which are only resolved by the Aunt marrying Dr.
Chilton at the end of the story. Nevertheless, at least one "glad club" existed as recently as , in Denver , Colorado. Porter , author of the Pollyanna books and one of the town's most famous residents.
The statue depicts a smiling Pollyanna, arms flung wide in greeting. The celebrated American science fiction writer Ray Bradbury described himself as " Janus , the two-faced god who is half Pollyanna and half Cassandra , warning of the future and perhaps living too much in the past—a combination of both".
Nixon wrote, "I believe there is always a sensible middle ground between the Cassandras and the Pollyannas. The awkward case of 'his or her' Word Games Where in the World?
