One of the best of Shirley's films
25 July 2001 | by (Batavia, New York, USA) – See all my reviews

I have watched Curly Top so many times. It is a classic. Shirley Temple makes it very much so. The title alone lets you know that it is a charming film, albeit from the 1930s.

Little Shirley sings one of her signature songs in the film. It is "Animal Crackers in my Soup." She sings it near a table at the orphanage. Everyone else tries to stop her. However, Shirley's teen sister, in the movie, sticks up for her as always. Her screen name is Mary (played by Rochelle Hudson).

I'm so glad that's what happens.
