Cute orphaned Shirley Temple (as Barbara "Ching-Ching" Stewart), a daughter of missionaries, gets stranded in Shanghai. When playboy tourist Robert Young (as Thomas "Tommy Randall) has trouble buying a "dragon head" from locals, Ms. Temple helps translate Chinese to English. Yes, the dimpled tyke occasionally speaks Chinese in this film. When he discovers she is homeless, Mr. Young agrees to care for Temple. After lunch, she waits in Young's car while he visits drinking buddy Eugene Palette...
Due to the rain and a runaway dog, Temple becomes a "Stowaway" in Young's car...
Temple finds herself on board a ship, re-encounters Young, then helps him hook up with attractive passenger Alice Faye (as Susan Parker). However, Ms. Faye is engaged to another man - putting Temple at odds with his mother Helen Westley (as Ruth Hope). Good luck opposing Temple. The film's highlight is Temple's imitations at an amateur show. First, she does Al Jolson and Eddie Cantor, singing. Next, Temple does an unfathomable, but delightful impersonation of Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers.
