Format: DVD
20th Century Fox presents "SHIRLEY TEMPLE COLLECTION VOL.4" (1936-1939) (225 min/B&W/Color) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Shirley Jane Temple is an American film and television actress, singer, dancer, autobiographer, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. She began her film career in 1932 at the age of three, and in 1934, skyrocketed to superstardom in Bright Eyes, a feature film designed specifically for her talents. She received a special Academy Award in February 1935, and film hits such as Curly Top, and Heidi followed year after year during the mid to late 1930s. She was the top box-office draw four years in a row (1935-38) in a Motion Picture Herald poll

FIRST FILM ON THE TRIPLE FEATURE:

Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation presents "CAPTAIN JANUARY" (1936) (77 min/B&W/Color) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Starring Shirley Temple, Guy Kibbee, Slim Summerville, Buddy Ebsen & Jane Darwell

Directed by David Butler

NOTE: Shirley and Buddy Ebsen team up for a very entertaining song-and-dance routine to "The Codfish Ball," the best song in the movie.
And some of the scenes of the lighthouse are magnificent. Shirley gets emotional during the final tug of war where she is being torn away from the Cap, a crying scene that reveals just how deeply felt some of her performances were.

20th Century Fox tried to rework the plot of "Wee Willie Winkie" in this Shirley Temple flick. One key person missing from the picture was director John Ford. The product suffers without Ford's vision of humor, action, and sentiment. Don't get me wrong. Shirley Temple is still America's Sweetheart. She is the lone survivor of a wagon train massacre, and RCMP Randolph Scott comes to her aid. This time it's American Indians on the warpath. Shirley almost single-handed prevents war on the Canadian frontier, while charming everybody in sight. By 1939, Shirley was starting to show definite signs of growing up, dangerous in a child star. She has a crush on Scott and tries to keep him from mooning around a good-looking woman visiting the outpost. As usual, Shirley's "isn't that cute" antics are amusing. Her culture clashes with the deadpan Indian kid, Little Chief, are comic. There is even some Western style action-adventure. Victor Jory is menacing if somewhat cliched as a villainous Indian. The usual elements just don't jell as well as they did in "Wee Willie Winkie." As wholesome family entertainment, all Shirley Temple films are a success, regardless. This one is pleasant, but not Shirley's best. ;-)

10-year-old Shirley stars with Randolph Scott in this powerful movie about a young girl, orphaned after a group of Native Americans kill the rest of her wagon train. She is then taken in to live with Randolph Scott at a military base. When a different group of Native Americans want to gain their trust their cheif gives his son to live with them. After learning to cope with the 'little cheif's' behavior, he and shirley become friends and together must save the life of a dear friend. This is not one of Shirley's best films with only one song. She shows her dramatic acting talent and is not always her sweet little self. Don't forget, this 1939 movie was after she was #1 in box office cumes and was only #5, soon to be pushed aff the top 10 list, completely.

This collection of Shirley Temple V4 collection are amazing. Shirley is adorable as always and each movie tells a great story.
I watch the movies two times the B&W version is my favourite because i like the contrast in B&W and I also watch the color version which is beautifully been colorized. I highly recommend it!

A good-quality set... Sept. 8 2006
By La Coccinelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
... to add to your collection of Shirley Temple movies. While these aren't some of her best, they are still entertaining.

"Captain January" is probably the most fun of the bunch. I like most of the movies Shirley made between 1934 and 1936, and this one falls neatly in amongst them. "At the Codfish Ball", a great song-and-dance number with Buddy Ebsen, is included.

By the time "Just Around the Corner" came out, Shirley was getting a little old, and the mannerisms that might have passed for cuteness as a child were beginning to get a little annoying. The movie is still worth seeing though, if only for her dance routines with Bill Robinson.

When watching "Susannah of the Mounties", keep in mind that it was a story about a different time (the 1880s) that was made in a different time (the 1930s). It will probably come across as somewhat racist to today's viewers, but it will still probably appeal to Shirley fans.

The problems with sound that I noticed on some of the discs in the last two collections seem to have been corrected. The audio was fine, and the colourizations were decent. People thinking of purchasing this collection might want to be aware that, unlike the three previous collections, there was no charm bracelet included with this one (I don't mind... I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the three I now have!).

All in all, it's a fine set for the collection. I hope there will be a Volume 5... I'm still waiting for "Stowaway" and "Poor Little Rich Girl" (two of my other 1936 favourites).

Temple stars in frontier adventure Dec 8 2007
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Shirley Temple's popularity at the box office was starting to wane when she starred in SUSANNAH OF THE MOUNTIES, an adventure set on the Canadian frontier. Despite the limitations of the material, fans of Temple should enjoy this little gem.

Temple plays Susannah Sheldon, who narrowly survives an horrific Indian attack and is rescued by the Mounties, led by Monty (Randolph Scott). Little Sue goes to live with Monty and his colleagues at the local fort, where pretty soon her unique powers of diplomacy are needed to help the strained relations between Indians and Mounties.

Pre-teen Temple was in her difficult transition period when she starred in SUSANNAH OF THE MOUNTIES, a film that tries to showcase her dramatic skills (at the expense of the cute musical numbers she was famous for). Audiences would never quite forgive Temple for committing the "cardinal sin" of growing up; a real shame because she could have made quite a career with screwball comedy (as later evidenced in "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" and "Almost a Bride", her final movie in 1949).

SUSANNAH OF THE MOUNTIES reunited Temple with her "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" co-star Randolph Scott; the movie also features talented British leading lady Margaret Lockwood of "The Lady Vanishes" fame (in one of her early attempts to break into American film).

The DVD gives you the option of watching the movie in original B&W or a computer-colourised version, plus the trailer. The coloured version of the film is actually quite good with lifelike colouring and great shadow detail. (Single-sided, dual-layer disc).

SECOND FILM ON THE TRIPLE FEATURE:

Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporations presents "JUST AROUND THE CORNER" (1938) (70 min/B&W/Color) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Starring Shirley Temple, Joan Davis, Charles Farrell, Amanda Duff, Bill Robinson & Bert Lahr

Directed by Irving Cummings

NOTE: In addition to the main song ("This Is A Happy Little Ditty," a very catchy song), there is a good production number near the end of the film. Legendary Bill `Bojangles' Robinson is on hand with 3 of his celebrated dance routines. Watch, when he dances with Shirley, how she matches him step for step - a marvelous terpsichorean treat. Those two were always fun to watch in their musical numbers together.

THIRD & FINAL FILM ON THE TRIPLE FEATURE:

Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporations presents "SUSANNAH OF THE MOUNTIES" (1939) (78 min/B&W/Color) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Starring Shirley Temple, Randolph Scott, Margaret Lockwood, Martin Good Rider, J. Farrell MacDonald & Maurice Moscovitch

Directed by Walter Lang, William A. Seiter

NOTE: Shirley and Randolph Scott show some real affection for each other, he may have been the best of her adult male co-stars. Of course Scott also has eyes for the extraordinarily beautiful Margaret Lockwood who is his commanding officer's daughter. One of Shirley's weaker vehicles, enjoyable only for die-hard Temple fans. Fortunately for Shirley, she still had "THE LITTLE PRINCESS" in release that same year. Which is one of my all time favorites of her films.
