Hayley Mills

When compiling yesterday's list of child stars whose faces have graced movie posters, how on earth could I have forgotten Hayley Mills, who shot to fame in Tiger Bay (1959) when she was 12 years old? It won her the BAFTA Award for Most Promising Newcomer. She promptly became a nice little earner for Walt Disney, winning the Academy Juvenile Award and the Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year in her first Disney movie: Pollyanna (1960). She was the most popular child star of her day. This picture of her is a detail from the poster for The Moon Spinners (1964). Click the title link for her biography. If you're still wondering who Thomas Brodie-Sangster is, CLICK to see him dangling a spider for Nanny McPhee (2005).
