PORTER ( - ) Pollyanna tells the story of Pollyanna Whittier, a young girl who goes to live with her wealthy Aunt Polly after her father's death. Pollyanna's philosophy of life centers around what she calls "The Glad Game.   An abridged version of the tale of orphaned, eleven-year-old Pollyanna, who comes to live with austere and wealthy Aunt Polly, bringing happiness to her aunt and other members of the community through her philosophy of gladness. Pollyanna knows the secret to finding a smile -- even when really bad things happen.

    When orphaned Pollyanna Whittier comes to live with her stern maiden aunt, she not only manages to spread her perpetual cheerfulness and optimism among the miserable people of the town, she also transforms the life of her lonely relative. Pollyanna was made into a Broadway play and a popular motion picture. Pollyanna is the daughter of Miss Polly's sister, who married a very poor young minister against the wishes of her wealthy family and was disowned. When the story begins, Miss Polly—the aristocratic Harrington family's only living descendant besides Pollyanna—is a rich, lonely spinster who feels obligated to care for her niece.

Pollyanna Comes Home book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers/5(3). Pollyanna is a best-selling novel by Eleanor H. Porter that is now considered a classic of children's book was such a success that Porter soon produced a sequel, Pollyanna Grows Up (ISBN ).

The novel's success brought the term "Pollyanna" (along with the adjective "pollyannaish" and the noun "Pollyannaism") into the language to describe Cited by: 1.

Price New from Used from Paperback, May 1, "Please retry" — First published: 01 May,   Directed by David Swift. With Jane Wyman, Hayley Mills, Richard Egan, Karl Malden. A young girl comes to an embittered town and confronts its attitude with her determination to see the best in life/10(K).

And there are even bigger surprises in store. Nancy and George are engaged, and they’ll wait until Pollyanna comes home so Pollyanna can be the flower girl. Pendergast and a very well-dressed Jimmy Bean have news, too.

Pendergast is adopting the orphan boy so they can “spend the rest of their lives just hangin’ prisms!”.

Pollyanna Comes Home book is an interesting book. It was published only four years after Anne of Green Gables, and both stories have a similar storyline: a plucky, young girl of eleven or so is orphaned and has nowhere to Pollyanna and Anne struggle with their appearance and both are received in a lackluster way, by new caregivers who aren't sure they really want them.4/5.

A Walt Disney film, Pollyanna, was released instarring English actress Hayley Mills in the title role (which made her a Hollywood star and led to a Disney contract). The film was shot at the McDonald Mansion (aka Mableton Mansion) on McDonald Avenue in what was then the small town of Santa Rosa, was directed by David Swift.

Synopsis "Pollyanna", the children's classic, is the story of its title character, a young orphaned girl who moves to Beldingsville to live with her strict maiden aunt. Pollyanna is a girl of great enthusiasm and eternal optimism. Her cheer and gladness infects all that she comes in /5().

Pollyanna, the orphaned daughter of a missionary couple, comes to live with her reserved aunt. Her tendency to find something to be glad about in. That POLLYANNA has fallen out of favor says more about our cynical times than it does about the book. Pollyanna was first published (to instant acclaim and success) in the year leading up to WWI, and its kindly philosophy is as relevant today as it was then.

There's a reason it has stayed steadily in print for nearly a century, and has been translated into many 5/5.

Obviously this book has staying power, though the nearly dozen sequels that followed (written by a number of various authors) have long since faded from the public's memory.

To the best of my recollection, the first Pollyanna book is far superior to those 4/5(27). Pollyanna is a fun loving book that features a bubbly young girl of ten who goes to live with her elderly aunt after her father's death.

Their characters contrast as soon as Pollyanna moves in, even though the young girl is a spirited, kind creature; however, her aunt is spinsterly creature with a crabby attitude and refuses to accept the girl.5/5(6).

To the best of my recollection, the first Pollyanna book is far superior to those 4/5(28). The book opens with poor, orphaned Pollyanna Whittier arriving in a small Vermont town to live with her wealthy Aunt Polly, "forty now, and quite alone in the world.".

Which brings us to the most annoying difference between movie and book – Pollyanna’s very character. Yes, movie Pollyanna is friendly and optimistic and frequently uses the world “glad,” but she is also sneaky, disobedient, defiant, and, frankly, annoying.

POLLYANNA is a year old American children's classic about an 11 year old girl written by Eleanor Porter. I suspect that most adults today read it as a child.

Pollyanna has a wonderful message about life not just for children but for any person of any age; it is uplifting. Audible has several editions of the book available. Orange Blossoms, Drivel, Gladness.

Nine years ago, when Pollyanna and its sequel Pollyanna Grows Up had newly burst upon the view, one reviewer, more prophetically than he knew, remarked: "Pollyanna retires from her second book at the age of 20 and she is 'glad, glad, glad for — everything,' for she and Jimmy love each other.

In this book, Pollyanna travels to Boston, where she meets an ex-convict, gets lost in the city, saves a young woman from degradation, and makes friends with a boy who keeps a Jolly Book. In the second half of the book, Pollyanna comes home from a trip to Europe as a young woman of 20, pretty as a picture yet convinced she’s unmarriageable.Re-Creating Pollyanna's America goes deep into the production design of the picture, with more interviews and behind-the-scenes home movies that are especially good - between takes, little Haley looks like a very serious little tyke.

In both documentaries, experts constantly explain to us what the early Americana experience was and why Disney.
