One of Shirley's Best
1 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Shirley Temple really shines in this gorgeous movie. Although the storyline is a tad weak, and features some of the cliché's used in her early movies (for example, winning over the old man- aka, in the Little Colonel) the singing and dancing definitely makes up for it.

Songs such as "When I'm with you" and "You've gotta eat your spinach baby" are magnificent mediums for Shirley's voice and the addition of cast members Alice Faye and Jack Haley make it even better.

This movie is definitely one of Shirley's best, and she showcases the charm and talent that is often void from the performances of today's child-stars. A must see for any Shirley fan.
