5.0 out of 5 stars GOTTA BE ONE OF SHIRLEY'S BEST. Nov. 25 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Shirley Temple, whose career as a child star was over by the age of 10 (and who, according to her very good autobiography, reaped a mere $18.00 from it when she asked her father for her reapings upon her second marriage), shines and super-shines in this adorable and heart-rending film.
She and her sister are orphans. A mysterious benefactor adopts them and they enter a life of luxury, but also a life of love. Rochelle Hudson is delicately beautiful as the sister, and John Boles is excellent and exceedingly handsome. I wonder what happened to them both?
"Animal Crackers" and "When I Grow Up" are the top numbers, as well as several sung by Boles and Hudson. All works out as it should be.
There's just something very moving about this movie. It's a genuine heart-tugger.
And Shirley is simply a delight! So glad the camera caught this amazing little girl with such a natural talent shining through her girlhood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shirley Curly June 20 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This movie isn't her greatest but it does have a very cute storyline which follows Elizabeth an orphan with her sister Mary who's performer parents who have died .she sings her way into trouble but well a good life actually when she sings animal crackers in my soup. Soon enough she is adopted my mr.rich and she is living it large. it's like one of her normal orphan flicks with those cute dimples,smile,singing,and dancing. it's fun to watch her adjust to the new lifestyle complete with all her little toys,bed,and watching her at the beach.She also does a cute little song with a jump rope saying when she grows up ....... i say she should never have grown up...oh well
