The 1960 movie Pollyanna is the most well-known version and is based on the 1913 book written by Eleanor H. Porter with the same title. Pollyanna, the main character in the movie (played by English actress Hayley Mills), is an orphan girl who comes to live with her rich Aunt Polly (played by Jan…e Wyman). Because Pollyanna was raised by her parents who were poor missionaries, she has never been exposed to wealth or proper social graces. She also has been taught the "Glad Game" by her father in which she, no matter what the circumstances, always finds something good. At first her Aunt Polly finds her to be a challenge but slowly Pollyanna's positive attitude begins rubbing off not only on her Aunt but on the entire town. Stories emerge telling of how the "Glad Game" helps people find a new outlook on life including a Reverend, a bedridden and depressed widow, and a loner who lives in a cluttered mansion. Pollyanna brings a ray of sunshine everywhere she goes and has a lasting impact on the town. One evening, Pollyanna climbs a tree to sneak back into her room and has a terrible fall. She is confined to her bed and the doctors are uncertain if she will ever walk again. Pollyanna believes that she at last has found nothing that she can be glad about until the entire town rallies around her. They all come to visit her and express their appreciation for how she has made a difference in their lives. The movie ends on a note of hope that she may walk again someday but stresses that what is most important is the love and support of family and friends. ( Full Answer )
