A Mixed Delight in Great Depression!
12 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm beginning to see why Shirley Temple's popularity was at it's highest during the Great Depression. In this film, the spoof parodies the 42nd Street story when the star doesn't want to perform but Shirley's character does. If it wasn't for the poor quality of the tape, I think it would have been seen. The audio is also poor as well but sound and talkies were beginning to take over the silent film generation. Anyway, Shirley Temple is cute as ever in this film. She rises to a poorly written script but maybe it was acceptable for a ten minute film. It's not bad but it could have been better. Anyway, the theme in Shirley Temple shorts and in the Our Gang series was children pretending to be adults. It's cute but it wears off after a while.
