William A. Seiter,
On 24 December 1939, a month before the film premiered, Shirley Temple and Nelson Eddy performed a 30-minute radio adaptation of the play on the Lady Esther Screen Guild Theater, a program adapting popular films with some of Hollywood's biggest stars. It was during this program, according to Ms. Temple's autobiography, that a deranged woman who'd been stalking her managed to get within three feet of the stage with a loaded gun before being stopped and disarmed. Ms. Temple, Mr. Eddy, and the rest of the cast somehow managed to keep their composure through all of this, with the listening audience none the wiser. See more »

Can she talk, too?
Well, naturally. If the dog can.
Oh, Tylette, I'm so glad! We've got to find the blue bird!
The blue bird?
I'll come! I'll help you!
You'll come too, won't you, Tylette?
Why not? It might be amusing.
I don't like the way she said that.
We shouldn't take Tylette along. She's treacherous.

I've seen this movie a couple of times and I just can't get enough. I simply love it, since I was a little child. I watched it for the first time when I was a teenager in the 80's and I still love it. All the characters are special to me, even the cat. She is mean but we can learn from her that we cannot trust everyone that says they're our friend. The dog is amazing. Always trusting. Someone you really can rely on. And the bird, of course, which is a metaphor for happiness. Maybe it's not in the past or future but here and now. Maybe it's within us, but never out there, or somewhere we've never been to, or someone we've never met.
