The best comedy movie ever made!
A fun little character piece as a bunch of less-than-honest types end up having to care for a little girl. While it's a Shirley Temple film, and she's fun to watch, the main story is watching how everyone around her starts to change. Well worth a look.
If you want to see a child actress of four-five years old at her extremely most talented - skim through this one and you'll be amazed! She was a major talent and unparalled at what she accomplished in the world of cinema at that juncture. A big wow.
Not a bad little film...Miss Shirley Temple was very cute in one of her first starring roles. Worthy of a watch.
A little girl is left behind by her gambling father as a collateral, but soon charms the hardened crooks and bookies with her childish cleverness, songs and dances. This was the film that turned little Shirley Temple into a star. The comedy itself slows down in the scsnes she is not involved in; though that decreases the enjoyment of the film, it gives a chance for Shirley Temple herself to show her on screen radiance.
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 first Shirley Temple movie I ever saw and it's probably one of my favorite because it owes as much to Adolphe Manjou and Dorothy Dell than it owes to Shirley Temple, who is adorable.
one of shirley's first films. thought it was very good. had a lot of heart and optimism with just the right touch of tragedy like most of her best films
★★ (out of four)
You either find Shirley Temple to be the cutest thing to ever hit movies, or you find her to be a precocious, annoying, spoiled little brat. I lean towards the latter. For me it is just way too much. The sugar is just poured on way too thick for me to enjoy.
In "Little Miss Marker" Shirley is an orphaned girl who becomes a pawn in a betting scheme. Her cute ways wins over the mobsters and tough guys.
Despite Temple's schmaltz, the film isn't a total bust. Adolphe Menjou and Dorothy Dell add to the picture considerably.
I thought this movie was pretty good. Definately a classic.
