Walt Disney and Live Action

Director David Swift on the Making of Pollyanna with Hayley Mills

During the research for my book Walt Disney and Live Action, I interviewed the late David Swift, the writer and director responsible for both The Parent Trap and Pollyanna for Disney. I’m making available a clip from my interview with Swift so you can listen to him yourself. Enjoy! Of course, you can read a lot of additional material from Swift in my book, as well as get the detailed behind the scenes story of how his two films for Disney with Hayley Mills were created.
