I loved this movie when i was younger
2 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OMG. I have been wanting to see this movie again for some time now! I remembered i had recorded (yes VCR)it once when it came on cable but on the newer machines the sound wasn't not audible :-( so i just threw it out. I cant wait to watch this with my 9yr old who by the way, absolutely LOVES SHirley Temple! SO glad to see i'm not the only one pining over this movie! Great ones these days are so few and far between! I agree with Lisa about Leachman. She was great in that roll of "Mam." I am sad to see there is no picture of the lil girl here on IMDb i would like to see what she looks like nowadays. I have no idea if she became a famous actress or appeared in other parts. I'm sure she did because she also, was great in her roll as "Sooner"
