Vicky Standing: Maybe someday you'll teach me an Indian dance.
Little Chief: Unh.
Susannah Sheldon: Isn't he rude? These Indians certainly are a problem.
Vicky Standing: You don't seem to have much trouble handling Little Chief.
Susannah Sheldon: It took time for me to understand him, though, but it was worth it.
Vicky Standing: Really?
Susannah Sheldon: Yes, because I expect to be here for a long time. But it wouldn't be worthwhile for you to go to all that trouble, because you're going home soon.

I've always liked Shirley Temple movies
14 November 2003 | by (chicago,illinois) – See all my reviews

I have a vast collection of Shirley Temple movies in my possession. I don't however have all of them I am still in search of some of the ones that I don't have but, I do have Susannah of the Mounties and I watch it often. I enjoy this movie because I've always liked movies that have a variety of nationalities in it. And Susannah of the Mounties has a mixture of white and native americans in it and I liked it. True she doesn't sing or dance in it like she is known for in her earlier works but, she still touches the hearts of watchers through her talents. In this movie she ends up teaching watchers that not all native americans are bad and that indeed whites and native americans could live together peacefully. Through her befriending the young native american chief she is showing people that all ethnic groups can live together peacefully and be friends to. She also shows how important it is to be there for loved ones or good friends when they are in need like she does for Inspector Montague after she finds out that he has been captured and almost put to death by the Blackfeet Tribe. And by being friends with Chief Big Eagle and Little Chief she convinces the Blackfeet tribe to save Inspector Montague and to punish the real traitor. I think all her movies teaches us the lessons of life we need to learn and because of her being the popular child star she was and how everyone loved her she was able to teach children good from bad and be the positive influence that she was and always will be.
