Movie Info

This Rebecca is 10-year-old Shirley Temple, appearing as an aspiring radio singer who, aided by her talent scout Randolph Scott, is found to be irresistible to competing cereal manufacturers who want her on the air for them. Scads of others have found her quite irresistible, too, for this is the little Ms. Temple at her finest. She sings song after song of her favorites, including "On the Good Ship Lollipop," "When I'm with You," "Come and Get Your Happiness," and "Animal Crackers." This piece has nothing to do with the Kate Douglas Wiggin story by the same name.

Audience Reviews for Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm

Absolutely funny and enjoyable. Shirley Temple is adorable as usual and supported by a hilarious cast. This one makes me laugh every time and is my favorite Shirley Temple movie. The verbal repartee is witty and often funnier than the slapstick in the film. Great tapdancing and songs plus fun situations make this a classic Temple film.
