IN CONVERSATION WITH Hayley Mills: Forever Young, A Memoir
IN ASSOCIATION WITH GUILDFORD BOOK FESTIVAL
Actress Hayley Mills was the most famous child stars of the ‘60s, acclaimed for her performances in a host of family classics. The daughter of Sir John Mills and Mary Hayley Bell, and sister to Juliet Mills, she spent her early teens in Hollywood and made several films with Walt Disney including Pollyanna – for which she won an Oscar - and The Parent Trap. She also starred in the much-loved British film, Whistle Down the Wind.
Now, for the first time, Hayley tells the story of those years, and in her own words. Using records from the Disney archives she discovered for the first time all the machinations that had gone into shaping - and arguably arresting - her career. As one of the era’s great teen idols, she realised she had spent a decade not being allowed to grow up, with the world changing around her just as she was changing herself.
An immensely nostalgic evocation of a bygone era, Forever Young is a frank telling of the reality behind the set dressing – and of Hayley’s survival.
