Flashback Friday-Polly: Comin’ Home! (1990)

Pollyanna is one of those books that many of us read when we were young.

Written by Eleanor H. Porter, it is the story of an optimistic orphan who is taken in by her wealthy and emotionally distant aunt.

In 1990, it was remade in Polly: Comin’ Home. Set in the 1950’s, the television movie starred The Cosby Show actors Keshia Knight Pulliam as the titular orphan and Phylicia Rashad as her aunt.

As reboots go, this isn’t bad. It was also banking on the fact that the two lead actresses were on one of the most popular televisions back then.

Do I recommend it? Yea, why not?
