Editorial Reviews

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Fox/Legend Films Version Is The Real Deal !!! November 14, 2005
Format:DVD
Finally,after about three years of suffering through a horrible-looking unrestored black & white/colorized version of Shirley Temple's 1937 version of "Heidi",Fox and co-partner Legend Films,an excellent company specializing in digital film restoration and digital film colorization,has now brought us for the very first time a brand-new,sparkling,and outstanding new restored b&w transfer of this great film which contains a brand-new color version,and it's the real deal ! Avoid seeing,renting,or owning the original DVD release ( mint green cover ) of this film that Fox has put out from 2002 which used a horrendously bad computer colorized version from 1986 that was also the same transfer later used for the 1994 video release that used a very grainy,dark,and murky print with extensive color shift from color-to-black & white-back to color and a great deal of reddish pink,gray,brown and blue tones.This new version made nearly 19 years later uses a brand new,digitally restored black & white version from a very good 35mm print that barely shows any wear,tear,splices,damages,or smear as well as including a very beautiful-looking new digitally made color version which looks very stunning,realistic,and almost storybook-like,especially the beautiful-looking shots of the Swiss Alps in the opening ! It really does look like it was filmed in Technicolor and is a much better comparision piece over the original color version.The only bonus features that are included,as it did with the original DVD release is an unrestored b&w theatrical trailer with a great deal of grain,dirt,and low contrast.Interestingly,the menu design used here in the new version is the exact same one as the original DVD version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Heidi-low ... Charge Fox with Child Neglect March 29, 2002
Format:DVD
"Heidi" is a charming film, and one of Shirley Temple's best star vehicles. It was originally released in 1937, near the end of Temple's long reign as the Number One box office attraction in America. In addition to a captivating performance by Miss Temple in the title role, it features excellent supporting turns from Jean Hersholt as the Grandfather, and the wonderful character actress Mary Nash as Temple's vitriolic adult nemesis (she also did a masterful job of menacing poor Shirley in the 1939 version of "The Little Princess"). Give the movie ****1/2 for its endearing sentimentality and lush production.
But rate the DVD an utter BOMB, and a dud at that. Fox Home Video offers two versions of the film on this disc, neither one of which is an acceptable transfer of this fondly-remembered and eagerly-anticipated release. One is the wretched "colorized" version that was released during that dreadful time in film history when modern businessmen dared to tamper with the classic artistry of bona fide filmmakers from the Golden Era (an experiment which critics and consumers alike rejected ... how many black and white classics are being colorized today?). The other version offered on the DVD is a substandard transfer of a very poor black and white print that is an insult to consumers. It doesn't do the original film justice, and more importantly, it's NOT the best print currently available. I predict that in a couple of years, Fox will offer a "newly restored" edition, and make the public buy this title once again to get an improved copy that should be available NOW. (Can you say, "Disney's 'Little Mermaid'"?)
I recommend you wait, and hold on to your money. Do not encourage studios by purchasing whatever inferior product they toss into the marketplace. This DVD is an insult to both Miss Temple whose box office popularity saved 20th Century-Fox from ruin during the depths of the Depression, and to the public who wishes to enjoy her unique talents on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie!! September 9, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I first decided to buy Heidi, I read some of the reviews. They were not very good. I purchased it anyway & I was glad I did! This movie is great. Shirley Temple is a wonderful & talented young lady. This movie does her justice in every way. The black & white movie is remastered & it looks really good. The color version is just as good. The way they made the mountains so vibrant & clear is really nice. It makes one feel like they are there. The whole movie is perfect. I have the VHS tape from when it first came out & the color isn't very good. My family will cherish it for a long time to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Story of a Grandfather and Grandaughter" January 22, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Heidi is an excellent film, of course starring Shirley Temple as the witty Heidi, about a young orphaned girl who is sent away by her mean aunt to live with her strict and stern, but loveable, grandfather in the Alps. The film consists of many hilarious moments, like when Heidi is learning to milk a goat and when she tries to yodel in the village. My favorite scene is when Heidi asks her Grandfather to tell her a story. He reads her a story about a little Dutch girl with a pair of wooden shoes. The story comes alive and Shirley plays the little Dutch girl. The movie is excellent for young children and for people who loved the novel, to me, the picture is much better. The scenery is spectacular for being a 1937 film and the costume designs bring you into the time of Heidi. No Shirley Temple collection is complete without Heidi!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shirley is beautiful in color!! September 2, 2005
By Adorem
Format:DVD
HEIDI has such beautiful color, it truly looks like it was truly filmed in color!!!! The colors are so vibrant, they jump right off the screen! Shirley has never looked this beautiful on film before, its as if this color has made her features come much more to life!!

The mountain scenes are beautiful, where when we see The grandfather or Shirley outside of the cabin, the trees and the sky are so beautiful. The tress are beautiful green, and the sky is beautiful deep blue!!

The clothes that Shirley wears are beautiful with the color and, wait till you see the christmas tree and all its colors!

One of the main reasons as to why HEIDI looks so good is because it was remastered and its truly flawless,its so clear and sharp!! Again, Shirley has never looked so good ,and her adorable beauty truly shines strong!The skin tone is done to perfection and, truly this great Shirley movie has never looked as good as this before!!
