Pollyanna Whittier, eager and spontaneous, couldn’t be more different from her cool and imperious Aunt Polly. But worlds are turned upside down, all for the good, in this classic story of the orphan who comes to live with her aunt, changing those around her with her optimistic “glad game.” Exuberant cast members bring immediacy to the dramatization. Gayle Hunnicutt as Aunt Polly cuts a formidable figure, maid Nancy is animated, and Phoebe Sterling as Pollyanna has the spunk to charm both the spinster and a lonely old man. The fade-ins and fade-outs of scenes are reminiscent of radio broadcasts and add a modicum of mystery. The pace is brisk and well suited to the intrigue of Porter's story.
