A Short Film!
24 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shirley Temple became a rising child star above all others since with her cute curly hair and personality. In this film, her big brother has trouble with women whether it's his mother, sister, or their pet dog. When he swears off his women, he meets his new next door neighbor who is an attractive girl and falls in love. He's a bit awkward and shy and obviously uncomfortable at times but he does a good job with the script. The quality of the film copy I have is quite poor and time has taken a toll on the film's quality. I suspect these short films held up when people went to the cinemas all the time. Today, these short films would show up on television or online. Still, Shirley Temple is the star attraction. Her appeal is still found today but the film could have used a better script overall.
