Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation presents "CAPTAIN JANUARY" (1936) (77 min/B&W/Color) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Starring Shirley Temple, Guy Kibbee, Slim Summerville, Buddy Ebsen & Jane Darwell

Directed by David Butler

NOTE: Shirley and Buddy Ebsen team up for a very entertaining song-and-dance routine to "The Codfish Ball," the best song in the movie.
And some of the scenes of the lighthouse are magnificent. Shirley gets emotional during the final tug of war where she is being torn away from the Cap, a crying scene that reveals just how deeply felt some of her performances were.

Quality goodish and being Shirley Temple what is there NOT to LIKE/
Of course Shirley was made to do this Film because the Producer in charge of her Films D.F.Z., DID NOT have the FORESIGHT to see how GREAT she would have been as DOROTHY in The Wizard of Oz, and refused to let a rival Film Studio `Star` her in thier FILM!
Well, we all know in retrospect that JUDY G had a HIT with this film but CAN YOU IMAGINE how FANTASTIC Shirley would have been in the Role?
Many thanks,
Paul douglas.

A good-quality set... 9 Sept. 2006
By La Coccinelle - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
... to add to your collection of Shirley Temple movies. While these aren't some of her best, they are still entertaining.

"Captain January" is probably the most fun of the bunch. I like most of the movies Shirley made between 1934 and 1936, and this one falls neatly in amongst them. "At the Codfish Ball", a great song-and-dance number with Buddy Ebsen, is included.

By the time "Just Around the Corner" came out, Shirley was getting a little old, and the mannerisms that might have passed for cuteness as a child were beginning to get a little annoying. The movie is still worth seeing though, if only for her dance routines with Bill Robinson.

When watching "Susannah of the Mounties", keep in mind that it was a story about a different time (the 1880s) that was made in a different time (the 1930s). It will probably come across as somewhat racist to today's viewers, but it will still probably appeal to Shirley fans.

The problems with sound that I noticed on some of the discs in the last two collections seem to have been corrected. The audio was fine, and the colourizations were decent. People thinking of purchasing this collection might want to be aware that, unlike the three previous collections, there was no charm bracelet included with this one (I don't mind... I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the three I now have!).

All in all, it's a fine set for the collection. I hope there will be a Volume 5... I'm still waiting for "Stowaway" and "Poor Little Rich Girl" (two of my other 1936 favourites).

Susannah of the Mounties 24 Aug. 2000
A Kid's Review - Published on
10-year-old Shirley stars with Randolph Scott in this powerful movie about a young girl, orphaned after a group of Native Americans kill the rest of her wagon train. She is then taken in to live with Randolph Scott at a military base. When a different group of Native Americans want to gain their trust their cheif gives his son to live with them. After learning to cope with the 'little cheif's' behavior, he and shirley become friends and together must save the life of a dear friend. This is not one of Shirley's best films with only one song. She shows her dramatic acting talent and is not always her sweet little self. Don't forget, this 1939 movie was after she was #1 in box office cumes and was only #5, soon to be pushed aff the top 10 list, completely.

Shirley Temple in the Great Northwest. 6 Jun. 2002
By Robert S. Clay Jr. - Published on
Format: VHS Tape
20th Century Fox tried to rework the plot of "Wee Willie Winkie" in this Shirley Temple flick. One key person missing from the picture was director John Ford. The product suffers without Ford's vision of humor, action, and sentiment. Don't get me wrong. Shirley Temple is still America's Sweetheart. She is the lone survivor of a wagon train massacre, and RCMP Randolph Scott comes to her aid. This time it's American Indians on the warpath. Shirley almost single-handed prevents war on the Canadian frontier, while charming everybody in sight. By 1939, Shirley was starting to show definite signs of growing up, dangerous in a child star. She has a crush on Scott and tries to keep him from mooning around a good-looking woman visiting the outpost. As usual, Shirley's "isn't that cute" antics are amusing. Her culture clashes with the deadpan Indian kid, Little Chief, are comic. There is even some Western style action-adventure. Victor Jory is menacing if somewhat cliched as a villainous Indian. The usual elements just don't jell as well as they did in "Wee Willie Winkie." As wholesome family entertainment, all Shirley Temple films are a success, regardless. This one is pleasant, but not Shirley's best. ;-)

Temple stars in frontier adventure 8 Dec. 2007
By Byron Kolln - Published on
Format: DVD
Shirley Temple's popularity at the box office was starting to wane when she starred in SUSANNAH OF THE MOUNTIES, an adventure set on the Canadian frontier. Despite the limitations of the material, fans of Temple should enjoy this little gem.

Temple plays Susannah Sheldon, who narrowly survives an horrific Indian attack and is rescued by the Mounties, led by Monty (Randolph Scott). Little Sue goes to live with Monty and his colleagues at the local fort, where pretty soon her unique powers of diplomacy are needed to help the strained relations between Indians and Mounties.

Pre-teen Temple was in her difficult transition period when she starred in SUSANNAH OF THE MOUNTIES, a film that tries to showcase her dramatic skills (at the expense of the cute musical numbers she was famous for). Audiences would never quite forgive Temple for committing the "cardinal sin" of growing up; a real shame because she could have made quite a career with screwball comedy (as later evidenced in "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" and "Almost a Bride", her final movie in 1949).

SUSANNAH OF THE MOUNTIES reunited Temple with her "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" co-star Randolph Scott; the movie also features talented British leading lady Margaret Lockwood of "The Lady Vanishes" fame (in one of her early attempts to break into American film).

The DVD gives you the option of watching the movie in original B&W or a computer-colourised version, plus the trailer. The coloured version of the film is actually quite good with lifelike colouring and great shadow detail. (Single-sided, dual-layer disc).

Rather Trivial, But Fun 16 May 2012
By Barbara Frederick - Published on
Format: DVD
Susannah (Shirley Temple) is the sole survivor of a wagon train which was attacked by Blackfoot Indians. The mounties who found her took her back with them to their fort, where she soon became a pet of the mounties. Inspector Montague (Randolph Scott) and his orderly Patrick are her substitute father and mother.

The Blackfoot chief comes to parlay, and agrees to leave his son Little Chief at the fort as hostage while he sends Wolf Pelt, one of his lieutenants, out to find the raiders. They are also assumed to be the ones who stole a bunch of horses from the railroad building camp. The Captain of the fort is willing to take the chief's word for it that he knew nothing of the raids.

There's a love interest (and a target for Susannah's jealousy) in the visit of the Captain's daughter from Toronto. Susannah teaches Montie how to dance, and then watches glumly while he dances with the young lady. Little Chief predicts Montie will "make her his squaw." This infuriates Susannah, who has decided she is in love with Montie. (She's about seven or eight, but never mind that.)

Little Chief and Susannah become "blood brothers," and he shares a secret with her: Wolf Pelt is the one who led the raiders and stole the horses. It was when he tried to sell the railroad men their own stolen horses that real trouble was kicked up. Wolf Pelt returned to the Indian camp after the railroad men beat up him and his men for trying to sell them the stolen horses. He demands war, saying that the head of the railroad builders threatened to bring a lot of soldiers out to destroy all the Indians. Of course, he does not have the authority to do that, but the Indians don't know that.

Of course courage and daring on the part of Little Chief and Susannah save the day when the Indians are prepared to burn Montie at the stake. And of course the end is a peace treaty, and Susannah sharing in smoking the peace pipe.

It's cute, but not very profound.
