Classic Treat - Enjoyable For All Ages
L. Shirley | fountain valley, ca United States | 09/09/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"At around 10 years old, Shirley Temple, by 1939 was a seasoned veteran. Steadily packing them into the theaters since the early thirties, her performance in "The Little Princess" will bring a tear to your eye and a smile to your face.

Sara Crewe is the daughter of Captain Reginald Crewe. Growing up in her beloved India, she led a life of privilege. Constantly doted on by her loving father, trying to make up for the loss of her mother. When the Captain is called to duty in Africa, Sara is left at an upper-crust school for girls in London. Mrs. Minchin, the snobby head-mistress, treats Sara like a princess, as she knows the money will be rolling in from daddy. But life takes a sudden turn for Sara, her father is reported dead, all the money gone, and poor little Sara must work hard for her keep at the school. She is treated miserably.

Sara knows deep down though, her father is still alive. It's a poignant and heartwarming journey with Shirley, as she takes us on an emotional roller coaster to find him. Directed by Walter Lang, it's a film that has stood the test of time, and a story that may be enjoyed by the enitre family(pretty rare these days).

Shirley does some dance numbers.A delightful one with Arthur Treacher, as they cheer up the wounded soliders in the hospital. And in another beautiful dream sequence, a ballet. Adding to the story is the romance of two teachers that are pulled apart by the evil Miss Minchin. The cast speaks for itself. Ian Hunter, Richard Green, Cesar Romero, Anita Louise, Mary Nash, and the above mentioned Treacher are wonderful.

Go back in time and enjoy this classic treat with the entire family....Laurie"
