Editorial Reviews

A wealthy man loses his wife and his fortune and must do repairs to support himself and his daughter. Luckily, his daughter is Shirley Temple! She soon finds him not only more money but even a girlfriend. One of Miss Temple's last performances as a child, JUST AROUND THE CORNER is also one of her most charming.

Yes, her mom's dead, and she's taking care of dad. Yes, they go from riches to rags and back to riches again. And yes, everyone lives happily ever after. But don't you want a Temple film to be that way! And along the way are some really interesting turns and twists (besides the dance steps), like Shriley teaching a mama's boy to beat the other kids to the punch in a rather anti-Pygmalian side story; and some great laughs with a very young Eve Arden and a bunch of dogs in the kennel. Sound interesting? It is really quite unique and one of my favorites of the Shirley Temple collection.

Shirley Temple was the princess of the box office for 1936, 1937 and 1938. This movie was the final Shirley Temple movie of 1938. If you like Shirley Temple this movie wears well. This movie is cute and funny and there are several classic moments that made me laugh out loud.

Shirley returns home from boarding school because of an unspecified problem. After she returns home we learn that Shirley's architect father has lost his job and has moved from a penthouse apartment to the basement. Her father is now the electrician for the building in which they live. Shirley takes everything in stride and does her best to persevere.

Shirley Temple was about 10 years old when this movie was made, but she looks younger. She retains much of the charm she had as a little girl. Shirley manages to keep the action and the humor both high as we see her raise money for wealthy Samuel G. Henshaw, thinking that he is Uncle Sam. Shirley manages to cut the curls from a boy's hair, causing his mother to throw a genuine fit, simultaneously generating some of the best laughs in the movie. Shirley also manages to have a dance routine with Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, the fourth and last dance routine in a movie for Shirley and Bojangles.

Shirley Temple was finishing a phenomenal run as the most popular actor of her day, and the most popular child actor in history. She would have eighteen more film roles, some of which were very good, but this movie marks the dividing line between Shirley Temple the phenomenally popular child star, and Shirley Temple the modestly popular adolescent and teen star. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and if you have enjoyed other Shirley Temple movies, you will enjoy this one too!

This is a good Temple film, and the transfer is nice. However, this is the version used on commerical TV about 15 years ago. There is a false fade out every 15 minutes or so where commericals were place. Why didn't Fox use a transfer from the mater tape? Other than that it's a goodbuy.

One more gripe: Why do the Shirley Temple films come in pink boxes? Can us guys enjoy these films as well?

JUST AROUND THE CORNER, made in 1938, was the last film that Shirley Temple and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson did together. While it is enjoyable, and includes two dance numbers by the duo, "(This Is A) Happy Little Ditty," and "I Love To Walk In The Rain," it is not as entertaining as their previous three films. Shirley made films for 20th Century-Fox for two more years, then went on to make several less successful "adult" films before retiring from show biz in the late 1940s; Robinson also went on to bigger and better things, including the classic 1943 musical Stormy Weather; he and Shirley remained friends until his death in 1949.

As usual, the film features both black-and-white and colorized versions, English fake stereo, mono, and Spanish mono soundtracks, and English and Spanish subtitles. Extras include theatrical trailers.

This is a good film, just not outstanding. R.I.P., dear Shirley...

I purchased this DVD as my daughter is performing one of the songs from the movie. However as a family we have watched it many times and all three of my children now get great enjoyment from the movie and they all know the words to all of the songs. Very happy with the movie itself and the quality of the recording

Even the most talented child stars have to grow up one day. In JUST AROUND THE CORNER, you can sense the "beginning of the end" of Temple's child star career. This was Temple's final movie of 1938; the following year she'd struggle to maintain her popularity at the box office as she tried to make the difficult transition from child star to juvenile performer.

In JUST AROUND THE CORNER, Temple plays out a variation of the same story she had done so many times before. When her father (Charles Farrell) loses all his money, little Penny Hale (Temple) is pulled out of her exclusive boarding school and reunites with him in their ritzy Manhattan apartment building - where they have been forced to move from the penthouse to the basement. Instead of complaining, Penny takes positive charge of the situation and befriends an old man she believes to be "Uncle Sam".

JUST AROUND THE CORNER is the usual sparkling musical comedy which Temple did so well. The Manhattan apartment building is full of great performers (Bert Lahr as the valet, Joan Davis as the dog-walker, and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson as the doorman!), and Temple gets to do a fun musical number with them called "This is a Happy Little Ditty".

Fans of Temple will really enjoy this high-spirited musical comedy, despite it's somewhat predictable nature, JUST AROUND THE CORNER is one to enjoy.

The DVD includes both B&W and computer-colourised versions of the film; the coloured version is quite good with accurate colouring and solid shadow detailing. (Single-sided, dual-layer disc).
