Critic Reviews for Little Miss Marker

All Critics (2)

It would be a mistake to think of the film as a Shirley Temple vehicle, since it owes as much or more to Adolphe Menjou, the tragic Dorothy Dell and Damon Runyon's chracters.

The original remains the most memorable of all of the versions because of Shirley, there was no one quite like her.
