Product Description

Amazon.ca

One thing Shirley Temple did extremely well (besides sing, dance, and act) was turn the cranky cuddly. She'd done it effectively, two years prior, in 1935's The Little Colonel with grandfather Lionel Barrymore. Now in Heidi she turns her reclusive grumpy grandfather, Adolf (Jean Hersholt), into the loving sort she knows he really is. Heidi is an orphan, dumped into the Swiss Alps by self-centered Aunt Dete (Mady Christians) onto a grandfather she's never known, but they soon learn to love each other. Heidi's mercenary aunt returns and sells (!) Heidi to a cruel woman, appropriately named Fraulein Rottenmeier (Mary Nash). Adolf sets out on a quest to find his granddaughter. Meanwhile, Heidi charms Klara Sesemann (Marcia Mae Jones), the wealthy handicapped girl in Fraulein Rottenmeier's care. Look for a delightful Arthur Treacher as the Sesemann butler. There's a cute fantasy production number, "In Our Little Wooden Shoes," featuring Temple in various period costumes. Throughout Heidi, Temple is, as always, wonderfully joyful. This is perhaps the best-known rendering of the popular children's story by Johanna Spyri (it's been filmed some 10 times). --N.F. Mendoza

2.0 out of 5 stars Wanted colour Feb. 20 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The cd tells me I can view in black and white or colour. No problem with the b&w but cannot bring up the colour, in spite of the fact the promo piece comes on in colour. I believe the cd is defective and would appreciate a replacement without having to return the one I have.

This, In my opinion is the best version of Heidi. Although the only big name actor, Shirley Temple the other actors portrayed their parts well. Will definitely watch again.

The story of Heidi is a Swiss story, but this movie is an Americanized version, where there is need for a real villain and suspense, totally different from the book, yet not unpleasant to watch, but not so cute as the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars review of Heidi Oct. 18 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must say the old movie is still as good as I remembered it as a child. My granddaughter enjoyed it. The condition it arrived in was new. Obviously it is not quite as vibrant in colour as todays bluerays, but they did what they could.
Still a good purchase for Shirley Temple fans.
