Why did you let me pull one over on you in New York?
Because I knew that one day I would get my money back. With interest.
Suppose you turn right around and repeat that slight-of-hand act. There's nothing in my eye, and if I'm not mistaken, that's a cop up there.
But you don't want to talk to a cop any more than I do. That's why I let you swindle me, so that when this day came, you couldn't call a cop.

The year 1934 was when Shirley Temple played three major movies and really began to make a name for herself. Unfortunately, the studios had to experiment to see what the public best liked about here. Two of those things were singing and dancing. Another was a short, interesting film that kept people's attention and got their minds off The Depression. You know the other keys to Shirley's successful films.
This film achieved none of the above, despite the star presences of Gary Cooper and Carole Lombard and despite a very good director in Henry Hathaway. In addition, there are too many talky parts in here which become simply boring, and too many arguments between a sullen Lombard and Cooper. To top it off, you didn't get the normal feel-good ending which is what the public wants. I guess they learned after this movie.
