Shirley Temple, in a role that seems custom-made for her, portrays the spirited young heroine of the popular children's novel, giving her rich emotional depth and infinite charm. When her aunt tires of caring for her, orphan Heidi is taken into the Swiss mountains to live with her gruff grandfather (Jean Hersholt), a hermit who comes to adore her. but the aunt returns to steal Heidi away, selling her to a family whose invalid daughter (Marcia Mae Jones) needs a companion. Bullied by an evil governess (May Nash), Heidi still charms the entire household and never stops trying to return to her beloved grandfather.

The old Shirley Temple movies are wonderful. Good stories that have sadness and then right does prevail.Published 10 days ago by Janie in Tennessee

I loved this movie growing up. Which is unusual because I only like cartoons. The cinematography is beautiful. It was fun watching this classic again after so many years.Published 10 days ago by A.L.
