  • Editorial Reviews

    Shirley Temple's superstardom in the 1930s was associated with Twentieth Century Fox, but before Fox locked her down she made the two films for Paramount bundled here. It was 1934, her breakthrough year, and these pictures are not quite yet the showcase vehicles Fox would assemble for their pint-sized meal ticket. In Little Miss Marker, Shirley comes under the wing of Sorrowful Jones (Adolphe Menjou in good form), as Damon Runyon's world of bookies and gamblers and soft-hearted gangsters comes to life around her. It's a heartstring-tugger of an expert kind; Shirley's final line, delivered in an operating room, should have grown men weeping on their knees.

    Henry Hathaway's Now and Forever casts Gary Cooper and Carole Lombard as world-traveling con artists, suddenly forced to grow up when Coop decides to take charge of his daughter. The lure of diamonds and the easy life is never far away, but rely on Shirley to keep her Daddy on his toes. The dimpled Ms. Temple plays a distinctly supporting role in this one, and her singing and dancing is limited compared to the vehicles she would command within the year. Cooper is all charm, although Lombard is stuck in something of a nag role. Still, a solid enough studio picture of the era, and a logical launching pad for the greatest child star in film history. --Robert Horton

    5.0 out of 5 stars SUPER COLLECTION OF HER 2 PARAMOUNT FILMS! April 22, 2005
    By Adorem
    This set is wonderful but, a few things have changed since this set was first announced. it was to be a 2 disc set and the 2 films were to be the colorized versions. What this set has is just 1 DVD and so both movies are on 1 disc and in black and white. The back of the DVD case shows the colorized photos which makes you think the films are the color versions. The menus also show colorized photos. The VHS versions which are in color looked very good but for some reason Universal decided to not include them.

    The real prize of this DVD is the extra, which is Shirley's very first movie and which has NEVER before been available on VHS or DVD or 16MM or any other format. "THE RUNT PAGE".Shirley is not shown much at all during the 10 minutes this film runs. She is shown right after the opening credits and then again during the last 3 minutes. She is very adorable here and, for this first film short, she is wearing only shorts, she would be covered up more in her next 7 berlesk film shorts.

    In this film short, she is aware of the camera and theres a few times where she is looking at it. She is so very adorable in her scenes and its amazing that at this time she was 3 years old!

    You will really enjoy this film short as well as the 2 movies which are in super quality!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Disagree June 29, 2005
    I cringed when I realized that these Paramount gems had been rereleased by Universal, but I needn't have worried. Contrary to the review previous to this one, the prints look and sound quite good, even--incredibly--The Runt Page, which is the oldest feature on the disk. The captions are, for once, quite accurate, and I believe there are some other language options as well.
    On the downside, the only insert is an ad for other titles in the series--no hard-copy chapter list. It also seems to me that perhaps commentary by Mrs. Black (Temple's married moniker) might have added value to the package.
    If you're not familiar with Shirley Temple, be warned: you're about to witness a full-fledged phenomenon. Shirley Temple is one of the most remarkable women ever born, and is certainly the greatest child star of all time. Sadly, she--despite her subsequent political achievments--is virtually never cited for her considerable accomplishments by advocates of women's groups, presumably because her political beliefs are "incorrect." My response to this (and to them) is "phooey." Her husband was once quoted as saying that he believes his wife "is some kind of deity"; watch her do her stuff and decide for yourself.
    Now, isn't it about time for Fox to do right by the little dynamo who single-handedly took them out of the red during the Great Depression?

    4.0 out of 5 stars Early Shirley July 3, 2006
    This DVD collects two of Shirley Temple's earliest movies and her very first short in one pack. The movies are "Little Miss Marker" and "Now and Forever." The short is "The Runt Page." Fans of Shirley Temple will want these early films for their collection.

    "The Runt Page"

    Shirley Temple has a minor role in this ten minute short. She is rarely seen and has no speaking part. Actually, none of the child actors has a speaking part as adults voiced all parts. This short is a satire of "The Front Page," which was released the year before, and features a host of small children dressed in diapers acting a short vignette based on that movie. The short is fair, and by itself would probably rate only three stars. The material is dated, the sound is poor, and I found the short somewhat tedious to watch.

    "Little Miss Marker"

    I have seen many, and perhaps most, of Shirley Temple's later movies. Those movies feature Shirley in various states of peril. However, I was unprepared for Shirley being a marker for a bet. Though I was initially appalled that any father could use a child as a marker, the movie was actually quite well done and the only character who failed to come away improved from their contact with Shirley was Shirley's father.

    Marthy "Marky" Jane (Temple) is left by her father (Edward Earle, in an uncredited role) as a marker for a bet. We do not see Marky's father again, but we learn that he lost his bet and committed suicide. We wonder what will become of Shirley, but, never fear, Shirley charms even the meanest of hoodlums. The ending provides redemption for the worst of the crowd, and foreshadows even more poignant (or maudlin, depending on your point of view) future Shirley Temple roles.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Little Darling Pack September 23, 2005
    By Jeff F.
    Verified Purchase
    This is a great opportunity to see rare Shirley Temple in pristine form. The Runt Page is Shirley's first movie with the Baby Burlesque group. Although her part is small, it is great to see her so young - Age 4. She was so cute even then. Now and Forever has a young Shirley starring with the great actress Carole Lombard. I am a big Shirley fan, but I have never seen this movie before.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good value for a "Franchise Collection" June 7, 2005
    By Yarby
    First off, this "set" only contains two full movies. That alone makes this far less of a value than Universal's many other "Franchise Collections", such as those for Abbott & Costello, "Ma and Pa Kettle", and "Francis the Talking Mule".

    Secondly, the transfers are very substandard. No effort whatsoever has been made to clean up these films, and the result is a transfer equivalent to a Madacy release.

    Definitely not one of Universal's better values.
