Quotes

Stebbins: That's the third sneeze.
Collins: I'm afraid you'll have to go to bed.
Barbara Barry: But I'm not sick. I feel fine!
Woodward: Oh, Collins, she's perfectly well. A sneeze is nothing to be alarmed at.
Collins: Maybe so, But I'm responsible for the child. Come along, dear.
Woodward: The child sneezes, and you'd think the world has come to an end. Why can't they leave her alone? She's a perfectly normal, healthy child. The way they carried on here, you'd think she was made of glass! Something ought to be done.
Collins: How Mr. Barry can stand that woman is ...

Shirley Shines in Soap Suds Musical
29 February 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

The precocious & incredibly talented little daughter of a widowed soap merchant dreams of living like a normal child. On her way to boarding school, she loses herself in New York City, changes her name and ends up living with a couple of ex-vaudeville performers. With spunk & vitality, the child makes them all stars of a radio show sponsored by her father's greatest business rival. Will she continue to enjoy her new freedom, or will her identity be revealed so that she once again becomes a POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL?

Shirley Temple is in top form in this winning film which gives her ample opportunity to display her many charms. She lights up the screen with her youthful joy. It's no wonder she was Hollywood's biggest star for several years.

Shirley is given fine support from Jack Haley & Alice Faye as her musical partners, and Michael Whalen & Gloria Stuart as her father & his new lady love. Claude Gillingwater is very good as the crotchety business rival who is melted by Shirley's affection. That's Jane Darwell as Shirley's nanny & Henry Armetta scores as an Italian organ grinder. Film mavens should keep an eye out for Billy Gilbert, in a tiny bit as a hilarious waiter.

Shirley sings `Oh, My Goodness', `When I'm With You' & `But Definitely' and joins with Faye & Haley in `You Gotta Eat Your Spinach, Baby' & "Military Man".
