Disney's "Polly"
Posted: 2/10/14 at 12:33pm
I just rediscovered the Disney film "Polly". It was made for TV in the late 80s and starred Phylicia Rashad and Keisha Knight Pulliam... With some work, I think it could be great for the stage. Any thoughts?

I would love that! I have the song "Sweet Little Angel Eyes" on my iPod and think of the movie-- naturally-- every time I hear it.

Debbie Allen choreographed... Maybe she could bring it to the stage? I love "sweet little angel eyes" too, and see great potential for an ensemble show stopper with "stand up"!

Ohh, that is very true! I was trying to remember what other songs are in "Polly" -- can you remember? I may watch it this evening now that you've put the thought in my mind!!

really?! I have the DVDs-- I got them for like $1 each or something when I temporarily joined Disney movie club to get hard-to-find movies such as those.

But anyhow, I think it would work to pull songs from both movies. Did Debbie Allen choreograph both though?
