Trivia

Shirley Temple later recalled of a chase scene in this film, "I was being chased by the little black boys who were playing the African natives. The director wanted all the children to fall at one time. I got through on the path and then they put a wire up and tripped all the little black boys at once and, of course, they all fell in a heap, and some of their legs were cut." See more »

Offensive Now Maybe Not Then1
12 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, this short is about Shirley Temple going to Africa to humanize the cannibal population. That's disturbing since she was only 4 years old. Anyway, the racism is apparently obvious since all the African parts were played by young Black children. Shirley's character and the Tarzan boy are the only white characters who try to civilize the African cannibals. Anyway, it's disturbing to see 4 year old Shirley in a coffee cup with salt being thrown at her since she would be dinner for the cannibals. It's up to the Tarzan boy to save her. Maybe it's a spoof on other films but I felt really turned off by the racism in this short alone. They could have parodied Tarzan and others films about Africa a little better.
