Little Miss Broadway

( 1 )

Overview

Child star Shirley Temple was getting a bit long in the tooth at age 10! by the time she made Little Miss Broadway. Facing the possibility that Temple's appeal was beginning to slip, the producers overstocked the film with top musical-comedy performers and character actors. The curly-topped actress is cast as orphan girl Betsy Brown, discharged in the care of her uncle Pop Shea Edward Ellis, the manager of a theatrical boarding house. Before long, Betsy is the darling of the clientele, including bandleader Jimmy ...

Overview

Child star Shirley Temple was getting a bit long in the tooth at age 10! by the time she made Little Miss Broadway. Facing the possibility that Temple's appeal was beginning to slip, the producers overstocked the film with top musical-comedy performers and character actors. The curly-topped actress is cast as orphan girl Betsy Brown, discharged in the care of her uncle Pop Shea Edward Ellis, the manager of a theatrical boarding house. Before long, Betsy is the darling of the clientele, including bandleader Jimmy Clayton Jimmy Durante, animal trainer Ole El Brendel, and a pair of wisecracking midget entertainers George and Olive Brasno. Snooty Sarah Wendling Edna Mae Oliver, owner of the hotel building, is fed up with "show people" and demands that they pay their back rent or move out post-haste. But Sarah's nephew Roger George Murphy, in love with Pop Shea's daughter Barbara Phyllis Brooks, comes to the aid of the hotel's occupants. With the help of Betsy and her friends, Roger pleads his case in the courtroom of judge Claude Gillingwater by staging a lavish musical revue. The specacle of George Murphy dancing with Shirley Temple will prove particularly amusing to those aware of both stars' future political careers. Songs include "Be Optimistic," "If All the World Were Paper," "Hop Skip and Jump" and the title tune. Incidentally, outtakes of Little Miss Broadway exist showing Shirley Temple doing a frighteningly accurate impersonation of her costar Jimmy Durante ha-cha-cha-cha-cha!

    Six Year Old Daughter LOVED IT!!

    My six year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed Little Miss Broadway. I believe this movie has begun her Shirley Temple collection, as she has requested more Shirley Temple movies (but only the colorized versions...LoL!!). I would recommend this movie for any little girl because its wholesome, clean and family oriented. A lot of these shows now-a-days on t.v. are a bit over the top and too advanced for the audience they are suppose to be catered to (and I'm a pretty "hip" 33 year old mom, but some of these shows are like...REALLY??!!). So, I'm glad this is something she is interested in because I can remember watching some of these as a child myself, so its almost like passing down a little bit of memories. :-)

    If all the world were paper

    My nan was OBSESSED with Shirley Temple films. And I was brought up on Little Miss Broadway, Heidi, Littlest Rebel and of course Captain January. I must say I absolutly love this film. Its so entertaining and 'if all the world were paper' is a great song. My favourite part of the film is when Betsy is dancing in her white outfit on the stage with the roof top scenery. Its great.
