Summertime is just around the corner and the thought of it has gotten me into a Hayley Mills mood these days! Although I rarely need a reason to get into a Hayley mood, as I call it! There are a few of her movies I always go to when I want a "feel good" fix and "Summer Magic" is one of them. Perhaps this would be categorized as being a children's film, but I'm an adult and I still enjoy watching it, even though I'm nearly twenty-eight (next month)! I suppose I'm somewhat like my mom, who loved taking her little sister to the movies because it gave her the chance to see a children's flick!
I grew up watching a lot of the old Disney films and I soon became obsessed with anything that had to do with Hayley Mills. She's the type of girl I could usually relate to. She wasn't plain, but she wasn't what you might call "glamorous" either. And I've never been a "glamorous" type of girl, as much as I wanted to be! Hayley is pretty and fun and she has a little bit of tomboy in her, which I kind of like. Since I grew up with five brothers and one sister, I think it was hard to be a girly girl growing up, so I tended to not venture too far in the beauty department. Anyway, all that said, Hayley Mills is someone I think a lot of us girls growing up could relate to. If you love her as much as I do, I hope you will go find this movie and watch it, if you haven't already! Even if you have to go to the children's section of the video store (or library) to get it!
P.S. Here's a clip of one of my favorite scenes from Summer Magic.
