The irrepressible Shirley Temple, whose earnest enthusiasm and unfaltering cheer buoyed a nation through the Great Depression, shines as an outspoken young orphan who plays matchmaker between her older sister and a wealthy benefactor.
The pint-sized performer serenades the orphanage with the delightful “Animal Crackers in My Soup” and captures hearts with her boundless optimism and self-assured goodwill.
