I THOUGHT ASHLEY ROSE ORR & HINTON BATTLE WERE WONDERFUL!
17 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

I grew up watching Shirley Temple movies and even now as an adult I enjoy flipping through the TV channels and finding an old Shirley movie. I thought that Child Star was a great movie and I especially thought that Ashley Rose Orr played the part of Shirley Temple GREAT. Her singing and tap dancing was wonderful and she kept up with Hinton Battle like a real PRO. I thought she not only looked like Shirley but she sounded just like her too, especially her mannerism and gesture while singing "Animal crackers in my soup". I thought this child did a FANTASTIC job and I look forward to seeing her in another Disney film soon. I also thought that Connie Britton played the part of Shirley's mom really well and I like the connection between Shirley and her mom. I think "Child Star" was a great movie and brought back allot of childhood memories.

Keep up the good work Disney!
