Bright Eyes

( 1 )

Overview

Despite stiff competition like Poor Little Rich Girl and Heidi, Bright Eyes is arguably the best of Shirley Temple's 1930s vehicles. The little curly-top is cast as Shirley Blake, daughter of Mary Blake Lois Wilson, the widowed housemaid of snooty J. Wellington and Anita Smythe Theodore Von Eltz and Dorothy Christy. Though continually terrorized by the Smythe's obnoxious, doll-destroying daughter Joy Jane Withers, Shirley finds comfort in the fact that she is the darling of the airplane-pilot buddies of her late ...

Overview

Despite stiff competition like Poor Little Rich Girl and Heidi, Bright Eyes is arguably the best of Shirley Temple's 1930s vehicles. The little curly-top is cast as Shirley Blake, daughter of Mary Blake Lois Wilson, the widowed housemaid of snooty J. Wellington and Anita Smythe Theodore Von Eltz and Dorothy Christy. Though continually terrorized by the Smythe's obnoxious, doll-destroying daughter Joy Jane Withers, Shirley finds comfort in the fact that she is the darling of the airplane-pilot buddies of her late father. Especially fond of our heroine is flyboy Loop Merritt, who arranges a birthday party for the girl. Alas, even as Shirley sings "On the Good Ship Lollipop" to a gathering of beaming airmen, her mother Mary is run over by a car while shopping for her daughter's birthday cake. It thus becomes Loop's painful duty to tell Shirley that her mother "cracked up," just like her father did if this scene doesn't move the viewer to tears, the viewer is made of granite. Fortunately, the Smythe's irascible Uncle Ned takes a liking to Shirley, securing her financial future at the expense of his repulsive relatives. But before this happy ending can come about, Shirley must be rescued from an imperiled passenger plane by the resourceful Loop. Though Shirley Temple is inarguably the main drawing card in Bright Eyes, 9-year-old Jane Withers is equally terrific as the pint-sized "villainess"; indeed, some critics felt that Withers stole the show, and it was this as much as anything else that earned Withers her own starring series at 20th Century-Fox.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Shirley Temple should definitely be seen as well as heard. Vocally, little Miss Temple is something akin to a nail on a blackboard, even when performing her signature song, "On the Good Ship Lollipop." But watch her deliver the very same number to an American Airlines crew in Bright Eyes -- and presto! Instant magic. No other child performer but Temple could have convincingly played Bright Eyes' cheerful little orphan; certainly not Jane Withers, who is thrown into the mix almost as an antidote. That Miss Withers runs away with every scene she is in is more to the credit of the writers, who merrily piled on the abuse. Withers added her God-given talent for mugging, and together they created one of filmdom's most memorable villainesses. The adults -- even such veteran scene stealers as James Dunn, Dorothy Christy, and Charles Sellon -- can do little more than stand back and watch in awe as the pint-sized duo goes to town.

    Cute!

    Cute movie!! I really like it. Cute story line, clean humor... it's a wonderful family movie, though may be unsettling for children 6 and under. Shirley Temple's mother gets killed by a car (not shown on screen) and there's a really bratty, obnoxious girl named Joy (ha ha!) in the film too. I really think this is a good movie, and I'm proud to own it in my video collection!
