1961 VS. 1998


okay so BOTH were great movies. Were there parts of the remake that you thought should have been in the original, or vice versa? Reflections? Complaints? Comparisons?

Watching this has made me want to watch the 1961 version again. This is a fine Disney remake.

I would say that the 1998 is truer to life. One or two of the soundtrack songs is old enough to have appeared in the 1961. The music beats the original. Hayley Mills screen presence does a lot for the 1961. So as far as I'm concerned these two could be watched back to back with equal pleasure.

They’re both great. I noticed Nick mention his parents and at least one sister. Liz never mentioned her mom, so I’m guessing she passed away at some point.
