Quite wonderful Temple vehicle that now pales compared to the Cuaron remake in '95. Temple is quite entertaining here with a supporting cast that delivers especially Mary Nash as the wicked headmistress. The ending is quite moving though one wishes Nash had really been served up some comeuppance. Rich colour cinematography especially in a quite striking dream sequence.
The movie itself is not unique on it's own, but it is easy to see why Shirley Temple for a short time was a phenomenon and here we get to see her curls at their most colorful too. High on the cute factor as long as you can digest the girl herself.
Cuarón's version of 95 had a sweet part in my childhood imagination. It's also fun watching the previous version, yet it loses some points when concerning to delicacy of some scenes and protagonist's overacting. Bit nostalgic.
Finally have the opportunity to watch the first adaptation of my all-time-fav childhood book, The Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Such an entertaining adaptation which starred the famous Shirley Temple. Although the ending is quite different from the book, it kinda fits the target audience on its era.
