    A Technicolor-bright addition into the Shirley Temple canon, this concerns a rich girl dropped into poverty due to the death of her father. Temple's role is focused on her stubborn contention, without any verifiable proof, that her father is alive. The rest of the cast, in differing degrees, either support or oppose her, and this dynamic drives the work. Although obviously predictable, still this remains a lighthearted children's film that is creative in it"s resolution.

    I read the book when I was a kid, and saw the remake, and this movie was pretty good too. It could have been better, though.

    Shirley Temple plays a rich girl in an exclusive boarding school, whose father is suddenly killed in the British War. She becomes a pauper and the hateful headmistress has her stripped of all privileges and forces her to work in the kitchen to earn her keep. Temple refuses to believe her father is dead and searches the hospitals for him where she encounters Queen Victoria.

    Cute Shirley Temple movie. The movie was adorable and loved the part when she dumped Ashes on the snotty rich girl! haha. ;) A favorite of mine back in the day.
