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 »

What a spectacular Shirley Temple movie I have chosen to see. It is entitled "Little Miss Broadway." I have been, for long, a big lover of musicals.
That is especially true for those with little Shirley Temple. She has adored audiences worldwide with her singing, acting, and tap-dancing in the films.
This is one of those rare movies that I would automatically give the number 10 to. It has an array of great songs such as the title. Shirley opens her act with the song "Be Optimistic." That is one of those songs where you can learn a life lesson.
"Little Miss Broadway" -- the song and the film itself -- are indeed heartwarming. That is rare for a musical show or film. Since it is a 1930s filmusical with Shirley Temple, I'd say it is right up there with the rest.
