Welcome to our Hayley Mills Tribute website.
At the tender age of 10 I was taken to see Hayley
Mills in her first Disney movie, Pollyanna, and fell instantly in
love with her. But, who didn't with that big beautiful smile, those
flashing blue eyes, and her lovely English accent?
As years passed I amassed everything I could get
my hands on pertaining to her life and career. This Hayley
website is a
result of my sincere admiration and appreciation for Ms.
Mills - an
actress who has brought a lot of pleasure and enjoyment not only to
me but to her millions of fans all over the world.
I would like to share my memorabilia with those
fans and friends who continue to support her and enjoy her work. My
collection has received both local and national recognition from
television and the print media. After writing and exchanging letters
with Hayley over the years I finally got to meet her at the Fox
Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia while she was touring with the musical
play The King and I in 1997.
When I introduced myself Hayley remembered me and
the letters that I had sent her over the years. I was fortunate to
meet her again a second time as her tour of The King and I was
coming to an end in 1998 at the Jones Hall Theatre in Houston, Texas.
Shortly after that I was asked by Van Ness Films, who are affiliated
with filming shows for the A & E Biography Network, to participate
in a salute to Hayley's life and career. My good friend Anne Nochella referred the films producer to me. I was asked to provide
the show with some items from my vast collection and was delighted
when I saw them on the program which aired on June 22, 1999.
Hayley Mills has that magic, talent and
determination it takes to be a great actress. She continues to
entertain us through her many stage plays that she has done over the
years and her recent T.V. appearances. In England she has appeared
in the mystery show Midsomer Murders and Moving On in 2014.
also continued her theatre career in England with a 9 city tour of
the play Ladies in Lavender in 2012 and most recently starred with
her sister Juliet Mills and brother in-law Maxwell Caulfield
appearing in the comedy Legends in Australia which opened in May
2015 and went on to play in Sydney in June.
Thank you, Lisa Ison, for all the time you spent photographing my
collection. I appreciate all you have done for me. You are a really
talented actress, singer and photographer in your own right. May God
bless you in all that you do. You are an angel.
My thanks and appreciation go out to Terry Whitsitt owner
of WebTech Design Group
for all his
patience, help, advice and ideas (Terry, I could not have done this
without you - you are so greatly appreciated), and to Phil Duncan
for print editing. I owe a very special thanks to my dear friend,
Mr. Christopher Morris, for allowing me to use his Tiger Bay,
Whistle Down the Wind and Secretary Bird photos. Another big thanks
goes to Timothy Latimer for his extensive list of all the plays
Hayley has done over the years, and one more thank you goes to Ms.
Vicki Ahmad for her support and friendship. Thanks again to all of
Hayley's fans for their love and support.
I hope you enjoy these pictures from The
Christmas 2015 play "Cinderella." Where Hayley Mills starred as the
Fairy Godmother at the Richmond theater in Richmond, England.
