Movie Reviews

If you like Shirley Temple, you'll love these movies.
B. Davis | 05/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This volume includes all of the movies mentioned. Each DVD allows you to select whether you would like to watch it in black and white or color. My nephew who is a fourth grader actually really liked it, so I think that makes it wonderful. It's cute, really clean, and has lots of singing. If you look for movies like that, you'll love this collection. I have all of the volumes and recommend them all. The picture and sound quality are great!!!"

Shirley Temple America's Sweet heart Collection, Vol. 1

"I have always loved the Shirley Temple movies and enjoyed sharing them with my 3 older children when they would come on TV. I now have a 5 year old little girl and I love being able to buy these movies on DVD now. My daughter loves them as much as I do and goes around singing some of the songs from them sometimes. In Vol. 1 her favorite movie was "Heidi", she was on the edge of her seat most of the time hoping that "Grandfather would find Heidi. I highly recomend the whole collection!"
Jus as good as I remember

"I remember watching Shirley Temple's movies on TV as a child. Watching them again on this DVD, they were just as good. A great feature of this DVD is the ability to watch all the films in Black and White or Color. Overall this is a great collection for a Shirley Temple fan. I just ordered the 2nd volume of the collection. Can't wait to own them all."
