Did You Know?
In Burnett's book The Secret Garden it is Mary's father who is related to Colin's mother. Also they were not twins. See more
If Colin had really spent his entire life in his bed and had never walked, his muscles would have been severely atrophied, and it would require years of therapy to rebuild them. He definitely would not have been able to walk as well as he does at the end of the movie if he had just started walking, at most, two months before. See more
My name is Mary Lennox. I was born in India. It was hot, and strange, and lonely in India. I didn't like it. Nobody by my servant, my ayah, looked after me. My parents didn't want me. My mother cared only to go to parties. And my father was busy with his military duties. I was never allowed to go to the parties. I watched them from my mother's bedroom window. I was angry, but I never cried. I didn't know how to cry.
