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).

Hayley Mills does a spectacular job playing twins Sharon and Susan who are split up at birth and then reunited at summer camp. Of course they plan to reunite their divorced parents before a new woman can get her hands on their father! It's not hard to see why this film has remained popular, Mills, O'Hara, and Keith all are wonderful, and even if the story isn't the most believable it is perfectly suited for younger viewers. Forget the 1998 remake, stick with the original.
