When the "Hot and Happy Four" are checking into the Hotel Variety, they agree to pay a year in advance at $40 per week. Mr. Wendling hands Mr. Shea a check and says "52 times 40 is 2,008." Mr Shea is pleased with this amount and Betsy even compliments him on his arithmetic. Captions verify the line. The error is that 52 x 40 = 2,080, not 2,008. See more »
This young lady wants to give you money to pay the rent on the hotel.
Nonsense! So you've gone in for social service, have you?
Not exactly, Aunt Sarah, I just met an acquaintance.
There's almost five dollars in here, and I'm sure Pop will have the rest for you very soon.
Bless my soul!
Keep your soul out of this. You will please get rid of this child.
But Aunt Sarah...

An orphaned Shirley is adopted by an elderly man and his daughter who run a hotel for "Entertainers", however when the rent is past due, the grumpy wealthy landlady who lives next door, tries to have the hotel closed. When that attempt fails, she has Shirley sent back to the orphanage, because of the " unwholesome " atmosphere at the hotel. But fear not, it IS a Shirley movie---it always works out!
I think this is an adorable movie. It's hard to grasp the reality of how YOUNG Shirley was when she did these films. To be so talented at such a young age! The story is cute, with a probably predictable ending, but the characters stand out and keep your interest. And watching Shirley dance to " We Belong Together " with George Murphy always makes me smile. Edna Oliver is PERFECT as a cantankerous IL' landlady. The film clearly isn't an Oscar winner, but if you enjoy good, wholesome entertainment without all the sex, violence and fowl language, you will LOVE this movie.
