According to director David Swift
, after looking at 362 girls for the part of Pollyanna, they still did not have anyone to play the part. One day, Walt Disney
's wife Lilly went shopping with Disney studio head Bill Anderson
's wife while they were in London on business. The two ladies saw Hayley Mills
in Tiger Bay
and thought she was perfect for the role of Pollyanna. The two men didn't listen to them, but they were so persistent that the men finally agreed to watch the movie and immediately decided to cast Hayley. See more
When Nancy and Pollyanna are delivering the charity baskets and they are at Mr. Neely's house, Nancy rushes Pollyanna saying, "Come on honey we still have three more to go." After they leave there they make another delivery, and after leaving that house Nancy has four jars in her basket and Pollyanna has one in hers. Shouldn't they have had two left if they had three to go at Mr. Neely's house? See more
