Hayley Mills: born 1946. The middle child of actor John Mills and writer Mary Hayley Bell, blonde, blue-eyed Hayley Mills became the epitome of English wholesomeness in the early 1960s in a series of Disney films. She first came to attention with a highly-praised turn as a pre-teen murder witness in “Tiger Bay” (1959), opposite her father. Based on this strong debut, Walt Disney signed Mills to a five-year contract, putting her in a series of sweet, ingratiating innocents ranging from “Pollyanna” (1960), for which she earned a special juvenile Academy Award, to a dual role of twins trying to reunite their divorced parents in “The Parent Trap” (1961) and the musical “Summer Magic” (1963 – a remake of Mother Carey’s Chickens, filmed by RKO in 1938). She also co-starred as one of three children who discover an escaped convict and believe he is Jesus Christ in Bryan Forbes’ “Whistle Down the Wind” (1961), adapted from a novel by her mother. After playing a perturbing student at a convent school who reforms in “The Trouble With Angels” (1966), directed by Ida Lupino, Mills shocked the Establishment and shed her pure image with a celebrated nude scene in “The Family Way” (also 1966).

Hayley Mills in ‘Whistle Down The Wind’. “Credit for this exceptional picture goes to many—to Mr. Forbes and to Richard Attenborough, who produced it; to Mary Hayley Bell, who not only wrote the story but is the mother of Hayley Mills, who plays the older girl in what is surely one of the most sturdy and eloquent performances of a sensitive child ever done.” NY Times.
