What can I say! Shirley is enchanting, and gives a superb and skilled performance as the Little Ray of Sunshine who makes everyone happy in the end. She was already a seasoned trouper by the time this film was made, and I think it's one of her best.

As wonderful as I remembered and you have the choice of watching in black and white or colour. The colour tint is very well done.

A lovely story but not as keen on this as others I have seen, such as Heidi and the Little Princess.
