An old-time favorite, Little Princess is fun to watch, because the sets are lavish and interesting, with quite a bit of variety: A high end boarding school lively with little girls and various staff + evil headmistress. A cold, dark, lonely attic room, which can be (and is) transformed into a delightful, warm and inviting receiving parlor. A neighbor who has traveled to far lands, and has the splendidly opulent apartment and strange but cool turbaned servant to prove it. And finally, the clean, somewhat austere, but classic lines of the military hospital. These all contribute to the enticing aura of Little Princess.

Then there is, of course, the adorably talented Shirley Temple who, as a bonus, isn't hollering "Grandfather, Grandfather!!!" at every opportunity. (One thing that made Heidi a little tedious.) She does let out a few "Father, Father"s, but they are less numerous and more refined, so that's OK here.

All in all, a charming little movie that will warm your heart and get you misty-eyed over the simpler, kinder days of yesteryore...
