Critic Reviews for Little Miss Marker

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

This picture is a delight in many respects, for it has been produced so pleasingly and with such efficient portrayals that only a dyed-in-the-wool cynic could fail to be affected by its sterling humor and pathos.

This picture is a good response to that element which claims there is nothing good In pictures. Clean, funny, with thrills and heart appeal all nicely blended.

The little girl is Shirley Temple, and she Is a brilliant child actress.

The most hardened picture‐goers are likely to find themselves laughing, and, perhaps, sighing, as they watch this cleverly‐written film.

No matter how you may think you feel about child actors, the Temple infant will get you.

This is the sort of yarn that Runyon told well and often: hard-hearted wise guys melting when they have to put aside tough talk and show their true emotions. It'll have you showing your emotions, too.
