Burke (Screenwriter), William Conselman (Screenwriter), Arthur C. Miller (Cinematographer) - - - - One of Shirley Temple's best movies is stolen by an absolutely riotous performance by Jane Withers as Temple's bratty nemesis-the mean rich kid who picks on poor,noble motherless Shirley ---.Worth seeing if you haven't seen a Shirley Temple film --- And this was one of the major hits of the 1930's featuring Hollywood's smallest and biggest star Shirley Temple plays an orphan caught up in a custody battle --- Shirley worships a daredevil pilot (James Dunn) and through the course of the movie gets the chance to sing and make immortal "On the Good Ship Lollipop" --- Also in the steadfast cast are: Jane Darwell, Judith Allen, Charles Sellon and probably the show stealer Jane Withers --- Withers is the perfect rich brat to be mean to the poor little orphan(Temple) --- One of the better projects of the busy little "curly top".

A very powerful and moving story.
Shirley Temple stars as an adorned mascot for a group of pilots. Her song "On the good ship lollipop" is very catchy and it brings a smile to your face.

James Dunn stars as her pilot friend. He teaches her the importance of being beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside. He also tells her to do the right things in life.

Lois Wilson stars as her hardworking mother doing all she can to keep food on the table. She lost her husband in a plane crash and must work for the high-society Smythe family. They are a bunch of snobs who dislike Shirley and her mother. Shirley does all she can to keep everyone's spirits up.

Charles Sellon plays uncle Ned who is wheel chair bound and hates living with the Smythe family. He is very fond of Shirley and prefers her to spoiled brat Joy Smythe.

Shirley's mother later gets hit by a car and sadly dies... leaving Shirley heartbroken.

A big custody battle begins - who will get Shirley? The Smythe family, Uncle Ned or Shirley's pilot friend.

Shirley really loves playing with the dog she calls Rags. This dog would later play toto in The wizard of Oz.

Worth watching!

Brilliant acting for achild so young.A good story though with some sadness.It shows the courage of a small child who is a victim of circumstances.May not be suitable for very young children because of the grief of losing 2 parents.All the cast are very believable
and Shirley's performance in dance and song excellent entertainment.

My daughter is 5 and she goes to a performing dance school. She had to learn "Good ship lollipop" song. I purchased the DVD to help her. She absolutely loves the movie. Sooooo glad, as Amazon delivered the DVD on time. Excellent service.
