The film opens with a close-up of a naked backside of young blond boy, who swings from a rope swing away from the camera jumping into a river. The boy is played by William Betz, who was 7 at the time of filming, who recalled in 2009 that at the time of filming, people weren't really allowed to swim in that river, White Sulfur Springs. He said his mother also had a very brief background extra role as one of the ladies at the train station where Pollyanna is picked up. Neither of them were actors but just locals where the movie was filmed. He is amused that the small Vermont town depicted in the movie was actually a mix of various locales miles apart in Napa Valley and Sonoma County, California. See more
When Pollyanna (and her doll) fall from the high bedroom window, near the end of the film, they land on the pathway some distance from the house. They should have landed, at most, just a few feet from the building. See more
We looked for the good in them, and we found it, didn't we?
