Babies with guns, babies with axes and Shirley Temple nude!
8 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

Well what can I say.

This was back when Hollywood would make little filler pieces like this with dogs or babies running around with adult voice overs.

The rug rats in this feature are being coaxed off-camera to perform a one acted stock gangster plot in their diapers, playing with cards, gangster hats, the afore mentioned weapons, etc.

There is also Shirley here, about 3-4 years old, as one of the gangsters girl friends. Back then they apparently thought nothing of having her topless.

No real "cinematic value" to speak of, but this is the kinda thing our grandparents got a kick out of in between flicks.

Also the DVD box (Little Miss Marker) says this is STs first movie.
