When child prodigy Shirley Temple Ruled the show !!!
Certainly the curse that caught the child players, met his first victim in Shirley Temple, she was the perfect paradigm to strengthen such matter, in this picture she is back from school due his broken father is no longer had a high class engineer job, he accepts a humble job as maintenance work at same building that he had used to live, the best thing that this picture offers is quite sure the ill tempered multimillionaire Samuel G. Henshaw played shiningly by the veteran actor Claude Gillingwater mistaken by Uncle Sam, smart script well developed to help the girl prodigy, possibly silly and dated, however nobody can deny the kindness and dexterity of Temple, a true benchmark at it's time, the DVD has an additional colorized version, recommended for all ages!!
