Captivating little Shirley rich in talent
9 September 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another musical showcasing the prodigious talents of little Shirley Temple. I recall hearing that Alice Faye said somewhere that she was hard put to it just to keep up with Shirley during that final dance sequence of the soldiers.

In this film Shirley is the little rich girl who becomes lost but is taken in by a family and soon gets acquainted with performers. It's a very pleasant musical, so just enjoy! My preference, however, is for her movies that have a simple and heartwarming tale to tell. The showbiz films are less moving as a story although still very delightful.
