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
