2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, August 5, 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Shirley Temple Collection (DVD)
Disk 1 contains 4 shorts: Glad Rags to Riches, War Babies, Pie Covered Wagon, & Dora's Dunking Doughnuts. Sound and picture quality is poor.

Disk 2 contains 4 shorts: Polly Tix in Washington, Kid in Hollywood, Kid in Africa, & Managed Money. Sound and picture quality is poor.

Disk 3 contains 3 shorts: Pardon My Pups, Merrily Yours, & What's To Do?. Sound and picture quality is poor but better than the first 2 disks.

Disk 4 contains the movie "The Little Princess". It is a colorized version. The sound quality is very poor. There is a lot of echo in it. In addition, the logo "The Shirley Temple Collection" is lightly superimposed at the bottom the screen throughout the entire movie.

Disk 5 is the best one of the set. It contains "Shirley Temple Rarities" and "Kid Stuff: Inside Hollywood's Child Stars". Rarities is a bio of Shirley that includes home movies and movie trailers. Kid Stuff is a bio of numerous child stars.

I general I would not recommend this collection unless you really a big fan of her short features or would like to see the two documentaries on disk 5.

Thanks for telling what is actually ON the disks, since Amazon doesn't tell you ANYWHERE in their description.

The Little Princess is one of the few Shirley Temple movies that was originally filmed in color. So no, it's not a colorized version. It always pays to check IMDB or some other reliable film source before making these statements.

Otherwise, thanks for the review. Sounds like the overall quality is very disappointing, so I'll stay away.

This is a very clear and to the point review and is much appreciated. It certainly helps in deciding whether to buy.
