Overview

The sole survivor of an Indian attack, orphan girl Susannah Sheldon Shirley Temple becomes the mascot of the Canadian Mountie outpost headed by Superintendent Standing Moroni Olsen. Mountie Angus "Monty" Montague Randolph Scott and his sweetheart and Standing's daughter, Vicky Margaret Lockwood, appoint themselves as Susannah's unofficial parents, doing their best to help the girl overcome her terrible ordeal. Eventually, it is "little miss fix-it"Susannah who brings peace between the Mounties and the Blackfeet, but not before Monty is nearly burned at the stake by the renegade Indian responsible for fomenting all the trouble. This is the film in which Shirley Temple not only teaches Randolph Scott how to tap dance, but also shares a peace pipe with a Blackfoot youngster and gets good and nauseated in the process. Based on a novel by Muriel Denison, Susannah of the Mounties was originally released in sepiatone.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
{Shirley Temple was just about coming to the end of her "little girl" phase when she made Susannah of the Mounties, but she still has enough sparkle to make the film well worth watching for her fans and more than tolerable for those who don't have a natural inclination toward her kind of films. Granted, it's manipulative and sugarcoated, but perhaps not quite so much as one might expect. Temple, of course, is given several set pieces that in the context of the film are ludicrous but that are nonetheless entertaining. Do we really buy that she would be teaching Randolph Scott to tap dance? Of course not. But it's an engaging little sequence. Does the peace pipe scene play out as expected? Oh, yes, but Temple's still good at it. More problematic is that, though this film tries to promote a positive message on racial issues but also engages in some stereotypical humor that undercuts that message for modern audiences. Temple is always the star of any of her heyday films, but Scott does well and Margaret Lockwood is much better than the part calls for. Walter Lang and William Seiter's direction is crisp when needed and appropriately syrupy when the situation demands.
