When Mitch Evers is driving Sharon home from the airport, the Thunderbird starts out in Park. You can see the end of the shift lever just above the top of the dashboard. About halfway through the scene, it disappears from view, and so the car is presumably in Drive. See more »
Susan's roommate at camp Inch:
The nerve of her! Coming here with your face!
Susan's other roommate:
What are you gonna do about it?
Do? What in heaven's sake can I do, silly?
Susan's other roommate:
I'd bite off her nose. Then she wouldn't look like you.

Early '80s Disney Home Video releases of "The Parent Trap" are missing the scene in the car between Sharon (playing Susan) and her father before they drive up to the ranch. Also missing is a dissolve between the scene where Sharon (playing Susan) is hearing about the new woman from the housekeeper and when she is going to the pool to meet the new woman(it becomes a straight cut and a few seconds are saved in the process).

I love the movie, always have. But then, why wouldn't I? Brian Keith and Maureen O'Hara, and Hayley Mills? Excellent cast. My parents took me to see this movie when I was a kid -- [I was born in 1955] so I wasn't too old and I totally loved it. I own the VHS and will probably have to buy the DVD, if I can find it.
Joanna Barnes is the woman you love to hate -- god wasn't she just wicked and terrible in this movie? You just hate her!!! Calling Hayley - pet, in that exaggerated way. UGH!
Brian Keith, god I just loved this man! Loved him in Family Affair too! Always such a good actor. [Some other favorites; Those Calloways, The Pleasure Seekers, Nevada Smith, and especially, With Six you get Eggroll.] Maureen O'Hara, what a wonderful actress. I loved her in this movie, but then love her in any and everything she's done really [some other favorites are; McLintock! and Spencer's Mountain].
Cute, cute movie.
