Hayley Mills

At 21, Mills' private life was of wider interest than her career as a former child star, as this timely and telling interview discovers.

Inside Film 1967 25 mins


The daughter of John Mills and a noted child star, Hayley Mills was interviewed aged 21. She had become involved with director Roy Boulting, who was 30 years older, and Braden deals in depth with the ensuing media coverage. Fidgety and abrasive, she objects to some of the more personal questions, but addresses typecasting and considers the future (which would see her prosper in film and TV).
