Shirley Temple's first costume picture -- and one of her best pictures of any kind -- was 1935's The Little Colonel.

The Greatest!

One of our family's favorites! The best part of all is the Baptism part! We love it and we love the whole portrayal! It truly gets a good message across for all times! (We know that at the time the movie was released, there was some negative opinion about Shirley holding Bill "Bojangles" hand, opinion which is so sadly ridiculous, because that is some of the best part - best dancing, etc. It was people doing a wonderful thing and should never should have been ridiculed. Folks need to lay down prejudices and get right in life! This movie is a good way to help set this world straight! AND PRAISE GOD THAT SHIRLEY WAS A "BIGGER" PERSON IN HEART THAN OTHERS and we have these wonderful movies to carry on for generations to follow to the end of time in the Lord Jesus! I cannot say enough good stuff about the Shirley T's movies and this is classified as "A #1"!! Forever!
