Ten minutes of this?! Uggh!
1 February 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Runt Page" is a film that satirizes the famous story "The Front Page"--with very small children playing the parts and with adults dubbing. This is Shirley Temple's first film, and for that reason it is an important film--though she doesn't appear until about 7 minutes into this 10 minute film. However, I must also warn you that it's truly godawful--too painful and too stupid for words! This is one of those terrible 'Baby Burlesque' films--where kids act like adults and this is supposed to be funny. Of course, folks back then also thought films where they did the exact same thing but with dogs was funny, too. The bottom line is that it's an idea that wears thin almost immediately. Seeing 3, 4 and 5 year-olds running about in diapers with bow ties isn't normal folks would enjoy. And, I worry about adults who DO like this sort of entertainment. As for me, I'd rather have my eyes gouged out with a rusty melon-baller than see a steady diet of films like this one.
