Editorial Reviews

When Ching-Ching's (Shirley Temple) missionary guardians are killed by Chines bandits, she must fend for herself on the streets of Shanghai. Taking refuge from the rain in a car's open trunk, Ching-Ching wakes up to find the car on a ship bound for America. The car's owner (Robert Young) is thoroughly charmed by the lost child, and proposes a temporary marriage to another passenger (Alice Faye) in order to give her a proper home. But when the two adults meet in divorce court, it's up to Ching-Ching to make them realize that they are in love.

I could watch her movies every day...I never get tired of them.
Loretta Wallace
The Stowaway holds up quite well,Shirley steals the show just from a charming Robert Young, It's obvious that he and Shirley got along very well.
Robert L. Stuart
These bits make the movie feel like a kid's movie, but thankfully there are very few moments like this.

STOWAWAY is one of Shirley Temple's best films, from her middle years with Twentieth Century-Fox. She gets to speak in fluent Chinese and impress with her impersonation skills.

She plays Ching-Ching, the enchanting young ward of two Chinese missionaries who are killed. Ching-Ching is smuggled away to Shanghai by the faithful Sun-Lo (Philip Ahn), only to get mixed up with carefree playboy Tommy Randall (Robert Young) after taking refuge in the trunk of his car. The car is loaded into the cargo of a luxurious ocean liner, of which Tommy is a passenger. Thus, Ching-Ching becomes the 'stowaway' of the title.

Alice Faye turns in a great performance as Susan, another passenger on the ship, traveling with her prospective mother-in-law (Helen Westley). All kinds of misadventures and misunderstandings occur before Ching-Ching ultimately brings together Tommy and Susan. Temple displays her uncanny skill for impersonation with her delightful takes on Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor and Ginger Rogers dancing with Fred Astaire!

Shirley Temple sings "Goodnight My Love" (later reprised by Alice Faye with different lyrics), "You Gotta S.M.I.L.E." and "That's What I Want for Christmas"; Alice Faye performs "One Never Knows". Truly a delightful film.

Shirley Temple provides the perfect foil for the romance involving a jaded millionaire's son and a regular American woman.
Robert Young plays a young man who is too rich for his own good, accustomed to buying what he wants and doing as he pleases, always staying within the moral lines censors used to draw to keep Hollywood from going haywire. Alice Faye is the girl next door with a lovely contralto voice and an overbearing soon-to-be mother-in-law.
When young Ching-Ching meets Uncle Tommy, he is impressed by her youthful innocence and aged wisdom (the result of living in a remote Chinese village for most of her life). She accidentally stows away on his luxury liner and bumps into Susan. After a few comical misunderstandings, a lovely song and moonlight kiss, Ching-Ching delivers an amusing rendition of imitations (including Al Jolson) and helps to further snarl things up for her two new friends. Her final act as a curly-topped cupid is to allow the divorce court judge to tell her what to say so that Tommy and Susan will have to admit that they want a happy ending as much as we do.
Arthur Treacher delivers a typically delightful performance as the slightly bewildered but striving to please butler.
P.S. Not a mental workout, but a fun way to spend an evening.

It is not easy to classify the films of that phenomenon Shirley Temple. You either love 'em or hate 'em and there is not much in between. For what it is worth, this is one of the better ones and a smash in its day. Shirley plays an orphan in the orient, of all places, complete with Chinese sayings and dialect - all pretty hard to stomach but still impressive for a kid performer. The pluses for this film is that there is a quite exciting story to tell and there are some flesh and blood roles for the adults. Robert Young is a convincing playboy and Alice Faye, emerging at the time from her Harlow look alike days, performs 2 great songs, the signature "Goodnight my Love" which became a huge hit and the stunning "One Never Knows, does One" filmed at the entrance to a moonlit balcony with Faye in closeup. No wonder she became a superstar. Her warm contralto sounds superb and she looks sensational.

The DVD print has been restored and is good but the soundtrack does not seem right with a sort of echoing resonance to it. There are no extras so I would not really say this DVD is great value.

The "Format" line in the Amazon description of this DVD states that it is in color and widescreen. Both of these are incorrect. This is not the colorized version and it is a full-frame (4/3) not a widescreen (16/9) image. The DVD case accurately states this so the error is Amazon's.

This does not detract from the fact that this is a delightful movie that showcases Shirley at her best.

A little girl orphaned by her missionary parents, Barbara (Shirley Temple), or "Ching Ching" as she likes to be called, is a bright-eyed youngster in a scary world. In spite of her guardian's wishes, she is smuggled aboard a boat to avoid certain death. She is robbed, but she soon finds her way to a wealthy American playboy who she dons Uncle Tommy (Robert Young). Tommy takes care of her for a while, but she gets lost and ends up a stowaway aboard a ship carrying both Uncle Tommy and the beautiful Susan Parker (Alice Faye). Susan is engaged, but Ching Ching does her best to get them together.

For the most part, this is a sweet, run-of-the-mill light romance. The love story isn't especially exciting or unique, but it serves its purpose to move the story along. Shirley Temple is certainly the main attraction and she gets many moments to shine. Unfortunately, there are a few moments where her interactions with the adults are too sweet and overly done. For example, when little Ching Ching jokes with Tommy in his car outside of the bar, she says something lame and they laugh loudly together, and the scene feels very forced. These bits make the movie feel like a kid's movie, but thankfully there are very few moments like this.
