The pigtailed hairdo that Shirley Temple wears in the farm scenes made headline news when this film was released. See more »
The "greatest hits" debacle gets even worse, however, when rather than offering a few cobbled together lines of fake "hits" which would've at least kept her in character as Rebecca, Shirley instead sings a medley of... Shirley's hits. Ouch. See more »
Shirley Temple tries the farm life as Rebecca, who wants to be a singer star on the radio.Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm is directed by Allan Dwan.It's loosely based on Kate Douglas Wiggins' book.Shirley Temple is so adorable in the lead as Rebecca.Gloria Stuart plays Gwen, Rebecca's cousin and Kent's romantic interest.Sadly Ms. Stuart passed away on Sunday Sep 26 at the age of 100.She got to do a lot in a hundred years.There's some fun stuff in this movie, like when they get Rebecca out of the house so she can go and sing on the radio.The musical numbers bring you in a good mood.An Old Straw Hat is delightful.Come and Get Your Happiness was really good.Shirley Temple's movies have brought so much happiness and joy to the world.And those are the two things we always need.
