Yes, as you would expect, Hayley Mills was very gracious in person. I got to chat with her a little (she did not know that one of "her" kids in "Parent Trap 2," Bridgette Anderson, died of a drug overdose several years ago), but there were a lot of people at the collectibles convention there wanting to talk to her too. Speaking of "Parent Trap 2," Carrie Kei Heim is now a lawyer in New York. I met her at a one woman show given by April Lerman when she was about to graduate from high school in 1987.
I loved the "in jokes" in the new Parent Trap, like Lindsay humming "Let's Get Together" as she got onto the elevator. And of course getting Joanna Barnes to do "Aunt" Vicki this time around was a stroke of genius. There was a new disco version of "Let's Get Together" on the movie soundtrack, but it did not appear in the movie itself.
