Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

What Price Toddlers
7 July 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Although Shirley Temple's obvious charisma is hard to miss in this film, War Babies borders a bit on the suggestive. The people who would put their kids in this film remind me of the parents of Jon Benet Ramsey.

In a kiddie satire on What Prie Glory, Shirley Temple plays Charmaine the French girl fought over by Captain Flagg and Sergeant Quirt as a pair of boy toddlers take over those roles. It's cute, but it kind of borders on the creepy.

Definitely one for her still active legion of fans, but not one to my taste at all.
