One of the funniest Shirley Temple movies
9 June 2006 | by mineralsSee all my reviews

This is one of the good movies that Shirley Temple made because I just love how you get so much laughter out of it. I just laughed like crazy when that one neighbor helped get little Shirley out of the upstairs bedroom and down the ladder to the other house then he got trapped up there because the ladder fell off the side of the house. I just cracked up and laughed because of how many funny scenes there are in this movie. I really laughed when the Aunt came upstairs and found that man in the bed instead of little Shirley. I also got a huge amount of laughs out of one of the final scenes in the movie when Shirley is taken away from her Aunt and how she fakes loosing her voice just to get back around the people she loves.
