March 21st

As the rambunctious "Little Colonel," Shirley Temple demonstrates her acting range as well as her lovable charm and song-and-dance showmanship in this affecting post-Civil War story. After a blistery Southern colonel (Lionel Barrymore) banishes his daughter (Evelyn Venable) for marrying a Northerner (John Lodge), he refuses to see her even when she returns years later with her young daughter. As outspoken as her grandfather, the ingenious child turns on plenty of charm and fireworks to set things right.

Rating: Not Rated

In her lavish period costumes, Shirley Temple is the delightful heroine of the appealing Civil War adventure, spiced with humor, fun and several rousing song-and-dance duets with Bill "Bojangles" Robinson.

Virgie (Temple), the young daughter of a Confederate soldier (John Boles), inadvertently causes her father's arrest after he sneaks through enemy lines to visit his ill wife (Karen Morley). When Virgie learns her father and a kind Northern officer (Jack Holt) have been sentenced to death, she immediately takes off for a little chat with President Lincoln.
