Turkish Pollyanna
4 December 1998 | by ersinSee all my reviews

First I would like to say that this movie is made in year 1971. In Turkey they made a lot of imitation movies from USA in the seventies.Like Wizard of Oz also with same young turkish actress Z.Degirmencioglu.This movie is a imitation of Pollyanna.The story is same as novel Pollyanna .An orphan girl who goes to her aunt in the big city.The performance of Z.Degirmencioglu is good but not enough to make this movie a good one.
