Movie Info

With her widowed mother (June Lang), precocious Priscilla (Shirley Temple) travels to India to live with her grandfather, Col. Williams (C. Aubrey Smith). A stern officer in the British army, the colonel makes it clear that a military garrison isn't any place for a child. Priscilla proves otherwise, befriending tenderhearted Sgt. MacDuff (Victor McLaglen), getting caught up in the plot of a rebel leader (Cesar Romero) and charming everyone in sight.

    John Ford directed this delightful yet curious look at Brit colonialism starring, of all people, Shirley Temple. She plays the daughter of a widowed soldier's wife who's granddad (the formidable C. Aubrey Smith) is the head honcho of an outpost in India. Vic McLaglan plays post sargeant who takes a shine to the imp (what else) and the two share great chemistry as she plays at being a soldier and he indulges her every whim. But in the final reel things get serious and some of the realities of colonialism get air time, adding weight and muscle to what was a breezy walk in Mayfair Park. I was surprised: "this is a Shirley Temple movie???" Yes it is, only directed by macho film guru John Ford. Superlative.

    This movie follows the typical "Shirley Temple movie" script and underlying themes. It was enjoyable, but not very distinct.
