The Parent Trap (1961)

Notes: 1/6/11
Opening credits are cute. 
Ricky Nelson reference. I love the pop culture allusions. Very 1961.
Impressive split-screen effects. It really does seem like there are 2 of Hayley Mills.
Leo G. Carroll has a funny bit as a Reverend.
Let's Get Together duet scene is fun

Review: B
Hayley Mills plays twin sisters in this entertaining live-action comedy from Disney. Impressive split-screen effects add to the fun, while the colorful supporting cast, particularly Una Merkel and Charles Ruggles, offer some welcome warmth. Mills is very likeable and Maureen O'Hara, who plays her mother, is quite beautiful.
