Movie Reviews

Typical Shirley Temple; and lots of fun
Mrs. Karen Griffin | Yucaipa, CA USA | 09/01/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, her mom's dead, and she's taking care of dad. Yes, they go from riches to rags and back to riches again. And yes, everyone lives happily ever after. But don't you want a Temple film to be that way! And along the way are some really interesting turns and twists (besides the dance steps), like Shriley teaching a mama's boy to beat the other kids to the punch in a rather anti-Pygmalian side story; and some great laughs with a very young Eve Arden and a bunch of dogs in the kennel. Sound interesting? It is really quite unique and one of my favorites of the Shirley Temple collection."
A Funny Shirley Temple Movie
Lonnie E. Holder | Columbus, Indiana, United States | 01/13/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Shirley Temple was the princess of the box office for 1936, 1937 and 1938. This movie was the final Shirley Temple movie of 1938. If you like Shirley Temple this movie wears well. This movie is cute and funny and there are several classic moments that made me laugh out loud.

Shirley returns home from boarding school because of an unspecified problem. After she returns home we learn that Shirley's architect father has lost his job and has moved from a penthouse apartment to the basement. Her father is now the electrician for the building in which they live. Shirley takes everything in stride and does her best to persevere.

Shirley Temple was about 10 years old when this movie was made, but she looks younger. She retains much of the charm she had as a little girl. Shirley manages to keep the action and the humor both high as we see her raise money for wealthy Samuel G. Henshaw, thinking that he is Uncle Sam. Shirley manages to cut the curls from a boy's hair, causing his mother to throw a genuine fit, simultaneously generating some of the best laughs in the movie. Shirley also manages to have a dance routine with Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, the fourth and last dance routine in a movie for Shirley and Bojangles.

Shirley Temple was finishing a phenomenal run as the most popular actor of her day, and the most popular child actor in history. She would have eighteen more film roles, some of which were very good, but this movie marks the dividing line between Shirley Temple the phenomenally popular child star, and Shirley Temple the modestly popular adolescent and teen star. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and if you have enjoyed other Shirley Temple movies, you will enjoy this one too!
Shirley Temple Just Around the Corner

"I purchased this DVD as my daughter is performing one of the songs from the movie. However as a family we have watched it many times and all three of my children now get great enjoyment from the movie and they all know the words to all of the songs. Very happy with the movie itself and the quality of the recording"
This is one of my favorites

"Just around the corner is excellent in a musical way. I love this!"
