The script required Shirley Temple to take a ride in an ostrich drawn card, but the frightened ostrich ran and almost crushed Temple. See more »
I promise if elected, I will go to Washington as a servant of the people and not as a puppet! And furthermore, my fellow Americans, this practice of castor oil consumption must be defeated!

Shirley Temple starred in many short films before the feature length productions. As a performer in the Great Depression, money was tight everywhere including Hollywood. This film shows kids playing adults who are in politicians in Washington D.C. This film short captures the silliness and foolishness of politics that probably occurs there. Shirley Temple is fine as Polly Tix. The other cast members who are all kids seem to realize the nonsense. While its a satirical take on politics, the kids probably act better than the actual adults. Still disturbed by the boys without shirts in these short films. The kid actors were obviously exploited and poorly paid. Maybe an investigation should take place to know more about how these children performers fared during and after.
