The Chalk Garden 1964 Deborah Kerr Hayley Mills Drama Mystery
Stars: Deborah Kerr, Hayley Mills, John Mills
A grandmother seeks a governess for her 16 year old granddaughter, Laurel, who manages to drive away each and every one so far by exposing their past, with a record of three in one week! When an applicant with a mysterious past manages to get the job, Laurel vows to expose her. Laurel is such a badly-behaved child that none of the other candidates can bear the thought of looking after her. Meanwhile, Laurel’s married-divorced-married pregnant mother tries to get her back.
The story is set in an old manor house in Sussex. The house used is a real one, in the village of East Dean on the South Downs near Eastbourne.
Hayley Mills is perhaps today best known, at least in America, as the teenage heroine of the series of family-oriented comedies which she made for Disney in the 1960’s. She did, however, also make a number of films in Britain, often on serious themes, and The Chalk Garden is one of these. Other examples include “Tiger Bay” and “Whistle Down the Wind“.
