Storyline

Wealthy, impossible to please lady Polly, whom only gardener Tom's irresistibly charming, indomitably cheerful son Tim, the chauffeur-handyman, can handle, grudgingly lets her late sister's orphaned daughter Pollyanna (11) move into her grand home. The staff takes to the playful brat, who finds the grimly stern dignified house regime stifling, but often gets round it. The happy game Pollyanna's father taught her soon spreads friendship and joy in the village. After succeeding to adopt a stray cat and dog, she sets her mind to 'fellow orphan' Jimmy Bean. Finding recluse rich neighbor Pendleton with a broken leg and another accident starts a cascade involving his and her family's past. Written by KGF Vissers

Typical well acted and directed British film
24 March 2005 | by albert-ealesSee all my reviews

I saw this film on PBS to-day and was deeply touch by it,I saw the two Hollywood versions of this many years ago,being young I was not too impressed with either,this film was done with typical British feeling,the scenes were wonderful and the acting very believable so that it was only after that I took particular note of their names that I realised how well they had played their parts and managed to conceal their own personalities,I was very impressed with Georgina Terry,her portrayal of Pollyanna was more believable than the two actresses who play that part in the Hollywood version.she touch my heart more because she reminded me of my 11 year old Grand-daughter,who is almost as bubbly and chatty.I hope to see more of her.
