April 18, 1946 Hayley Mills Parent Trap
A child of the 80’s, my first experience with Hayley Mills was when she had the misfortune of being cast in one of the horrid made-for-T.V. Parent Trap movies. Luckily, I had a dutiful mother who also raised me on Disney, and it didn’t take long to get around to the good stuff- like the real Parent Trap with Maureen O’Hara, and The Moon Spinners with Eli Wallach. Much like Jodie Foster in Candleshoe, Hayley Mills had gotten a few good Disney films under her belt before she moved up the Hollywood ladder. But even then, nothing could compare to the classics like Pollyanna, and That Darn Cat. The ideal teen idol, she flaunted hairstyles, makeup, and fashion in the vein of other Disney Sweetheart Annette Funicello.
