  • Trivia

    • During a lunch engagement at the farm of John Mills, director J. Lee Thompson lamented to the actor about the difficulty he was having casting the right boy for a part in his newest film, Tiger Bay. Through the farmhouse window, Thomspon saw a young girl play-acting in the yard. Sparked by her improvisations, the director decided to change the character's gender. In 1959, Hayley Mills' performance in J. Lee Thompson's thriller Tiger bay, opposite her father, John Mills, was met with rave reviews.
