Shirley Temple's pictures all tend to be pretty much the same... The Little Colonel doesn't vary much from formula except that this time we have Shirley Temple in technicolor.

Dig past the regrettable signs of the time, and you will find a sparkling entertainment.

Who could forget "Bojangles" step dance on the stairs with Shirley?
