"Curly (Shirley Temple ) and her sister Mary are secretly adopted by Mr. Jones. Curly adds joy to Mr. Jones life while Mary falls in love with Mr. Jones. Curly sings and dances through-out the movie with some of her best songs yet. She sings "When I Grow-up" and "Animal Crackers in my Soup". Mary and Mr. Jones also sing and play a few songs as well. There are a few comic moments and the ending is a happy one. This film is apporiate for people of all ages and a film everyone can watch over and over again. Curly Top is wonderfully cheographed and has a great moral to the story."
One of Shirley's best films.

"Shirley plays a mischevious, singing-and-dancing orphan with an older, protecting sister who stays in the same orphanage with her. A wealthy trustee adopts them, telling them that their real guardian, "Mr. Jones", is away and that he will be taking care of them for awhile, so they won't have to thank him for his works. The trustee, their real guardian, falls in love with older sister Mary and little Shirley plays Cupid for the two. Includes "Curly Top", "The Simple Things in Life", "Animal Crackers in My Soup", and "When I Grow Up"."
GOTTA BE ONE OF SHIRLEY'S BEST.

"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."
A delightful Shirley Temple Film!

"Shirley Temple is pint-sized in this film and is fun to watch as she sings some of her number one theme songs "Animal Crakers in my Soup" and "When I Grow Up." Shirley plays Elizabeth, an orphan living at an orphange that her sister Mary works at. Shirley charms one of the trustees and he imediately falls in love with her spunk. The movie has some entertaining moments that strike us all. I always laugh when Elizabeth is trying to adjust to her new rich and spoiled life. All though Shirley seems to be sweet and innocent through the whole movie, she has a selfish point where she says she rather have a pair of roller skates when her gaurdian gives her a pearl necklace. She saves that little rude comment by putting on a benefit for her orphan friends. The story line at times is hard to follow, but as always ends happily. Curly Top is a wonderful movie for young children, but doesn't have a moral or a point. Shirley of course will dazzle you!"
