It is my all-time favorite Temple film.
Dustybritches32
Look for fine performances by Gloria Stuart as Margaret Allen, an assistant to Barry's rival soap manufacturer, Simon Peck (Claude Gillingwater).
Matthew G. Sherwin
Lots of good songs and dance numbers make this movie so charming.

Shirley Temple is charming in this darling story of a young girl named Barbra going on her idea of a vacation. She meets new and exciting people like Tony, an Italian papa, and The Dolan family, radio stars that invite Barbra into their radio act. The story is heart-warming and filled of surprises, but ends happily. Shirley sings and dances consistantly throughout the film, but my favorite song at the radio program is "You've gotta eat your spinach baby!" My mom always use to say that to me as a little girl! If you are a big Shirley Temple fan, you will of course enjoy Shirley in this enchanting film. The movie also contains other excellent actors and actresses like Alice Faye, Jack Haley (the Tinman from "The Wizard of Oz"), and Gloria Stuart in her early years before "Titanic." Add this film to your Shilrey Temple Collection!

When eight year old Barbara Barry, the daughter of a wealthy, widowed soap manufacturer, sneezes three times at the dinner table, the strict servant Collins (Sara Haden) sends her off to bed. Woodward, (Jane Darwell) another servant - who has a kinder approach - suggests that little Barbara be sent to a school in the Adirondacks where she can be happy with many other children her own age...A thoroughly delightful Temple vehicle, this colorized video will please children from 5-95. The picture bears little resemblance to the 1912 Eleanor Gates novel because many of the incidents in the movie come from a Ralph Spence story entitled BETSY TAKES THE AIR. A highly successful version - which was much truer to the original book - was filmed as a 1917 silent starring Mary Pickford. Amusingly, Shirley sings the song BUT DEFINITELY in a manner a'la Crosby singing WHERE THE BLUE OF NIGHT MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY. By 1939, this movie reaped a $2.5 million profit. One of Shirley's better films, to be sure.

Shirley Temple is one of the greatest child stars in the world, her popularity soaring during the Depression era, and beloved still today. She was a real prodigy and phenomena, the likes of which we'll never see again -- bona fide adorable with thousand watt personality and a confidence and self-reliance that was never obnoxious. In her films, adults are usually conveniently dispatched to allow her an autonomy and series of adventures that makes her a great child heroine for children; invariably she also sets the adult world straight.

"Poor Little Rich Girl" is one of her best films, because it is not only a wonderful Temple vehicle, but a great musical in its own right and a pleasure to watch. Temple plays Barbara Barry, the over-protected and bored daughter of a wealthy widowed soap manufacturer. She is to be sent to school, where she will have the needed companionship of other children, when her nurse (Sara Haden) is injured. Barbara meets a vaudeville pair (Alice Faye and Jack Haley) and ends up in a radio song and dance act, Dolan and Dolan, sponsored by a rival soap company of her father's.

Along with the abundant charm and talent of Shirley Temple, there is the glorious Alice Faye and ebullient Jack Haley. The criminally underrated Alice Faye was a wonderful, sensual singer and here gets to croon several songs (and display the many facets of her personality, which was as multi-faceted as Ginger Rogers). It is especially wonderful to hear Faye's rendition of "But Definitely" in contrast to Shirley's version. Unlike some musicals, the song-and-dance numbers are woven beautifully into the plot, since it is set in the world of radio, and they are superb.

Format: VHS Tape
THE POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL is one of Shirley Temple's most delightful offerings. She plays Barbara Barry, the daughter of a rich soap manufacturer (Michael Whalen). While being taken off to boarding school, her governess is run down by a car and in the confusion Barbara wanders off into the city. Taking on the persona of her favourite storybook character Betsy Ware, she moves in with a pair of vaudeville hoofers (Alice Faye, Jack Haley) and joins their act. Hilarity ensues when the troupe is employed by a rival soap company, and Barbara's other life is exposed.

This movie is a real charmer. Shirley sings "Oh My Goodness" as her dolls come to life and dance for her, as well as her classic "Spinach Baby" and "When I'm with You". The finale dance of "Military Man" is another highpoint. Alice Faye sings the delightful ballad "But Definitely".

With Gloria Stuart, Jane Darwell and Sara Haden.

Why haven't Poor Little Rich Girl and Our Little Girl been released on DVD? For those of us who have grown up watching these movies and are trying to complete our collection in DVDs, I'm afraid we might be dead before somebody decides to finally release them. It's no wonder people resort to burning their own DVDs or buying them from overseas to complete their collections.
Come on MGM, please release these last two movies so we can complete our collections. If you were smart, you would have worked out a deal with Paramount and released their two and your last 2 in one set. As it is, I've already purchased the two from them and am just waiting for these now.
