A spoof of kids playing adults!
12 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, Hollywood has always been a disturbed place especially for children in the entertainment business. Unlike adults, children performers were poorly paid and after all it was still the Great Depression where money was tight everywhere. The Baby Burlesque has kids playing adult roles. In this one, Shirley Temple plays a cabaret singer and dancer at a nightclub. It is the kids who rule the world. I am disturbed by the boys going shirtless and wearing diapers. They weren't disposable. Shirley Temple and the cast obviously don't realize they're spoofing adult films with the same stories. The early cinema showed short films like this before the major presentation instead of commercials.
