I am a big fan of Shirley Temple, so I was very pleased to have the opportunity to purchase this DVD. I have enjoyed watching this movie many times and will continue too. It reminds me of a simpler time. Highly recommended for children of all ages and for adults that get pleasure from watch an uplifting movie.

The First Fox Film That Made Her A Star Shines In Living Color ! July 7 2006
By Jake Marsico - Published on
Format: DVD
At the age of only seven,young Shirley Temple made her first leading starring role for Fox Studios with 1934's "Baby Take A Bow" and thus a legendary child star was born to become the newest studio box-office attraction.Young Shirley lives with her mom (Claire Trevor) and ex-con dad (James Dunn).But when a pair of her dad's friends pearl necklace is stolen,it's up to him to catch the real crook and also convince himself that he isn't the thief he use to be years ago.Featuring wonderful strong performances and a great direction by Harry Lachman (Laurel & Hardy's "Our Relations" and "Dante's Inferno"),the film never loses its comedy stylings nor dramatic tone and highly fast-paced all the way.Highly recommended !


This fun film makes its wonderful DVD debut as part of the Voulme Two Shirley Temple DVD Collection of her beloved films.This DVD features both a restored black & white version as well as a brand-new digitally colorized version that completely blows away the horrid 1994 colorized VHS release.Legend Films has always done outstanding work on the colorization processing for the films they release as well as including the original B&W version too,but extras are nothing more than a lackluster effort (hence the four-star rating).As with the previous Temple releases from Fox and Legend,it contains both unrestored trailers for "Heidi" and "Little Miss Broadway".Despite the absence of many extras,owning both great transfers of the film on one disc makes this a must-have to any fan of classic film or to family film buffs,you won't be dissappointed with this release ! Well-recommended !

It is a fun film.... Dec 20 2005
By Fletcherfan - Published on
Format: DVD
I have been a fan of Shirley Temple for about 34 years. I love all of her films. Baby Take a Bow is one of her very first vehicles by herself ( coming off Stand Up and Cheer and Little Miss Marker). The film has typical Shirley fare with singing and dancing. James Dunn plays her father and Claire Trevor plays her mother. Basically, dad is an excon trying to live life on the straight and narrow and gets caught up in events that could get him back in jail. The scene in which Shirley is "Captured" by the bad guy is scary, but no scarier that what kids see in Disney films.

I am glad that Fox has released this films with both the original black and white and the colorized version. When Fox had released them on VHS originally, you could only have the colorized version, so I am glad that respect was given to the original medium. I was a little disappointed with the extras. I wish that they could have added a trailer for the film or a mini bio or clip of Shirley when she was younger. Overall, I am very pleased with this copy. If you are new to Shirley Temple, in my opinion the must see films are Bright Eyes and Poor Little Rich Girl.

Great for parents - careful with little ones! Jan. 7 2012
By H. L. LUSK - Published on
Format: DVD
*My review does contain a spoiler*, but it's something good to know if you watch this with young children (6 and under). We received the box set of movies (Bright Eyes, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm & this one) for my young daughter who loves singing and dancing. She loves watching Shirley Temple dance and act, and overall enjoyed this movie but be forewarned that the end is rather scary (SPOILER ALERT: she's kidnapped briefly at the end and is caught in crossfire which frightened my daughter). The scene is over within minutes and compared to today's movie violence is very tame, but I wish I'd known so I could have addressed it ahead of time. From an adult perspective though it was a very clever film and my older daughter loved it and understood the storyline. Definitely enjoyable and better for her to watch then Bright Eyes which is really scary!

Baby Take a Bow!! :) Oct. 28 2013
By Lydia Boley (Southern Gospel Addict) - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I purchased this movie because it is one of my favorite Shirley Temple movies. Not disappointed in the least! :) It also features playing in B/W and Color! I had only seen it in the colorized version, and was glad I was able to see it in its original version. :)
