The Parent Trap (12-Jun-1961)

Director: David Swift

Writer: David Swift

From novel: Das Doppelte Lottchen by Erich Kästner

Keywords: Comedy, Twins, Divorce, Summer Camp

Eleven-year-old twin daughters unaware of each other meet at summer camp and concoct a plan to reunite their divorce parents. Witty dialogue and overall sophistication exceeds that of a children's film; adults will enjoy as well. Received Oscar nominations for Best Sound and Best Editing. Followed by two abysmal sequels best left unwatched. Remade as The Parent Trap (1998).
