Overview

Best remembered as the film that featured Shirley Temple singing "On the Good Ship Lollipop," Bright Eyes comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.33:1. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital Stereo and Dolby Digital Mono. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence. This is a fine release from 20th Century Fox, though more could have been done with the extras.

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 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!
