POLLYANNA

Wealthy, impossible to please Lady Polly, whom only gardener Tom's irresistibly charming, indomitable happy son Tim, the chauffeur-craftsman, can handle, reluctantly lets the orphaned daughter of her late sister Pollyanna (11) move into her large home. The staff goes to the playful brat who stifles the grimly strict, dignified house regime, but often bypasses it. The happy game that Pollyanna's father taught her soon spreads friendship and joy in the village. After successfully adopting a stray cat and dog, she focuses on Jimmy Bean. Finding a lonely wealthy neighbor, Pendleton, with a broken leg and yet another accident sets off a cascade that affects his family's past. Pollyanna Whittier lives with her wealthy but bitter aunt after the tragic death of her father. Pollyanna shares a game that her father taught her - the "Glad Game" - in which everyone finds a silver lining even in the darkest cloud and proves her sunny nature, good mood and determination to look at the bright side of life these have an amazing effect on the people around them.
