The Parent Trap

The Parent Trap (1961) starring Hayley Mills, Maureen O'Hara, Brian Keith and Joanna Barnes.

It's great and the remake is great (I forgot just how similar they are). I know people are just craaaaaaaazy about Mean Girls (and it is good), but I think The Parent Trap was Lindsay's shining moment.

One of the few moments that didn't end up in the remake.
I never went to summer camp - when you actually live in the area where other kids travel to go to camp, it doesn't really make sense. 

I also think that it would have really stressed me out and I wouldn't have enjoyed it in the slightest. 
I love the detail of the girl who doesn't want to leave her skunk behind at the end of the summer.
