Shirley Temple was presented with the first Academy Award ever given to a child for her role as Shirley Blake. She was then the youngest person to ever be listed in Who's Who, and was also the youngest person to ever be spotlighted on the cover of TIME Magazine. See more »
During the song "On the Good Ship Lollipop" while the plane is taxiing you can see the edge of the screen where they are projecting the outside. This is most obvious when she sings the line "...and there you are..." just after "Cracker Jack Bands fill the air" the first time. See more »
Hollywood's smallest, biggest star Shirley Temple plays an orphan caught up in a custody battle. She worships a daredevil pilot(James Dunn)and through the course of the movie gets the chance to sing and make immortal "On the Good Ship Lollipop". Also in the steadfast cast are: Jane Darwell, Judith Allen, Charles Sellon and probably the show stealer Jane Withers. Withers is the perfect rich brat to be mean to the poor little orphan(Temple). One of the better projects of the busy little "curly top".
