In the dance party scene, where the layer cake falls off the beak of the totem pole and drops onto Miss Inch's (Ruth McDevitt's) face, director David Swift originally wanted to cut the shot of the cake-fall. But when Walt Disney saw the rushes, he told Swift to leave the shot in, saying it would be the biggest laugh in the movie. Turns out, Walt was right. See more »

An early US laserdisc release is missing the car scene mentioned above, but not the pool transition a few minutes later. It is, on the other hand, also missing about 50 seconds at the start of the conversation between Margaret and her father as she tries to pack for the trip to CA (during which he informs her of the plane ticket, questions her choice of dress, and ponders what sort of lady Mitch might have married since the breakup). Like many Disney releases, it is also missing the distribution title card (Buena Vista) and the accompanying drummed introduction to the title song. See more »

Hayley Mills does a spectacular job playing twins Sharon and Susan who are split up at birth and then reunited at summer camp. Of course they plan to reunite their divorced parents before a new woman can get her hands on their father! It's not hard to see why this film has remained popular, Mills, O'Hara, and Keith all are wonderful, and even if the story isn't the most believable it is perfectly suited for younger viewers. Forget the 1998 remake, stick with the original.
