Movie Reviews

Dimples,a lovely and charming film
tanjaminge@classicfilm.zzn.com | Heilbronn,Deutschland | 04/25/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Hello,I'm from Germany and an absolute Shirley Temple-worshipper. This movie is vintage -shirley, although I have to admit more on the sentimental side. If you love a good cry and lots of musicalnumbers,you will take this one."
Research Needed on Cover Material
CJS | Hagerstown, MD USA | 10/03/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"While this is not one of the best of Temple's efforts, the film held your interest and had excellent acting by Frank Morgan and Helen Westley. However, the material on the dvd cover indicated "See the Famous Staircase Dance with Bill Robinson". Unfortunately, that is not in this film. Bill Robinson is not in this film, although he directed some of the dance sequences. I think the people producing these products need to check their research BEFORE they develop the cover materials. While I knew Bojangles was not in this film, there could be others misled by this material."
Pure vintage Temple fluff
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 04/11/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"DIMPLES is pure vintage Shirley Temple, a fluffy musical confection about a little girl who busks on the streets while her grandfather 'The Professor' (Frank Morgan) picks the pockets of the audience.

Dimples gets taken in by the kindly - and rich - Mrs Caroline Drew (Helen Westley) before landing the plum role of Little Eva in a musical production of "Uncle Tom's Cabin".

Temple gets to sing "Hey! What Did the Bluejay Say?" among other numbers. Co-starring Robert Kent, Delma Byron, John Carradine, Astrid Allwyn and Stepin Fetchit. This is a colourised version of the original black and white film."
This older version cuts out too soon at the end.
Reliable Reviews Too | Carmel Valley, CA | 08/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are two different versions of "Dimples".

The cover-picture of this older, version shows just Shirley's head, has a peach-color background, though you can't distinguish the color difference of the covers on Amazon; and has a release date of Jan. 29, 2002. This older version cuts out too soon at the end, missing Shirley's smile at the end, and wrecking the film. (some twit likely trying to save money on the colorizing work by shortening the film a few seconds at the end).

The cover-picture of the other, newer, version includes Shirley's arm, with the pink background, is the "Shirley Temple Collection" version, and has a release date of March 21, 2006. I have not seen the other, newer, version.

The movie story is very good. Charming children. Humor. Good singing. Frank Morgan, the wizard from the "Wizard of Oz". Shirley is poor, but honest, living with an elderly Professor, who is a thief. Shirley seeks to cure him of his stealing ways. All Shirley's movies are good."
