    Bear Shooters
    Popular child actor (and later radio and TV stalwart) Leon Janney made his one and only "Our Gang" appearance in "Bear Shooters." Ordered by his mother to look after his kid brother Bobby "Wheezer" Hutchins, nine-year-old Spud (Janney) is worried that he won't be able to join his pals on a hunting trip --- while his pals know that if Spud doesn't go, Spud's mule Dinah can't go either. A compromise is reached whereby Wheezer tags along with the rest of the Gang as they seek out "big game" in a nearby woods. But instead of capturing a bear, as they had hoped, the kids are confronted by a gorilla --- actually a heavily costumed bootlegger (Charlie Hall) who wants to scare the youngsters away from his hideout. Unfortunately for the crook and his partner (Bob Kortman), the kids are a lot more resourceful than they appear. Originally released on May 17, 1930, "Bear Shooters" slipped into Public Domain in 1984, and as such is one of the most readily available "Our Gang" talkies. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Merrily Yours

    The Red-Haired Alibi
    It's remotely possible that the title of this low-budget meller was inspired by Jean Harlow's better-known Red Headed Woman. Lured to New York by smooth-talking gangster Trent Travers (Theodore Von Eltz), carrot-topped Lynn Monith (Merna Kennedy) is soon earning oodles of money to keep Travers company as he travels from one nightspot to another. In this way, Lynn can provide an alibi for Travers whenever his henchmen are off doing his dirty work. Believe it or don't, our heroine never catches on that her sugar daddy is a notorious criminal until he bumps off a rival crook. But don't despair for Lynn; no sooner has Travers been disposed of than she finds happiness in the arms of virtuous Rob Shelton (Grant Withers). Red-Haired Alibi was the feature-film debut of Shirley Temple. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    War Babies
    One of several shorts made early in Shirley Temple's career, War Babies is essentially a take-off on war movie conventions, performed by a cast of infants and very young children. Babies takes place at Buttermilk Pete's Café, where the dress code runs to diapers and rubber pants, with the occasional army helmet, tie or vest thrown in for good measure. A quartet plays some typical café music, and Shirley Temple dances out, clearly performing the role of a French dancer-cum-temptress. The piano player can't help but shift music to a vampy, come-hither mood, but is quickly told to straighten up. Shirley gets the big eye from one doughboy in particular, who orders his milk straight up (which he pays for with the coin of the realm -- a lollipop). Shirley's dance moves into high gear when the ice cream off one of the musician's cones drops down her back. The doughboy talks Shirley up, but so do several others, and it seems that Shirley is most interested in whoever can add to her own personal collection of lollipops. When a new boy arrives with a huge lollipop, it looks like the doughboy may lose Shirley, but he trickily gets possession of the larger candy stick himself and keeps Shirley as a result. Just then a messenger arrives, and all of the soldiers have to leave. Shirley tearfully bids the doughboy adieu, waving a handkerchief after him as he leaves, before blowing her nose with it. ~ Craig Butler, Rovi

    Kid 'n' Africa
    Kid in Africa is a one-reeler that places young children in the roles usually played by adults in a typical jungle adventure. Shirley Temple plays Madame Cradlebait, a missionary determined to civilize the cannibals in the jungle. Her expedition, weary from travel, settles in a camp after a long journey. Unfortunately, cannibals immediately appear. Her party flees, and Cradlebait is captured and placed in a giant stew pot. As the cannibal chef prepares his tasty dish, her cries for help are heard far away by a jungle boy (played by Daniel Boone Jr.). He gives his famous yell several times, spraying his throat when necessary, and rides his trusty elephant to the rescue. Cradlebait enlists the jungle boy's help in civilizing the cannibals by building a city in the jungle, the straw buildings of which replicate a busy hotel, gas station (dispensing milk), etc. The jungle boy has also been civilized, now wearing middle class finery and apparently married to Cradlebait, who forbids him to golf as he wants, as he must go home and do the dishes. She takes the reins of the elephant from him and guides them home, where he is also called upon to take a diaper and attend to the cries of the little one in their tree house home. ~ Craig Butler, Rovi

    To the Last Man
    Previously filmed in 1923, Zane Grey's To the Last Man manages to pack plenty of A-level production values into what was essentially a B-picture budget. In the years following the Civil War, Kentucky man Lynn Hayden (Randolph Scott) moves his family to Nevada, partly to start life anew, but mostly to leave behind the bloody family feud between the Haydens and the Colbys. This, alas, is not to be: once in Nevada, Hayden lands in the middle of a war between cattlemen and sheepherders -- a war involving the same two families. The film's title is grimly accurate: virtually no one is left standing at the end of the film. The superb supporting cast includes Esther Ralston as heroine Ellen Colby (seen to excellent advantage in a semi-nude swimming sequence!), Jack LaRue and Noah Beery Sr. as the slimy villains, and Shirley Temple in a small part. In addition to its many other plusses, To the Last Man introduces a novel method of billing the actors: each player is introduced by name as he or she appears on-screen. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Dora's Dunkin' Donuts
    Despite Shirley Temple's over-the-title billing, the real star of Dora's Dunkin' Doughnuts is Andy Clyde playing Andy Wilson, a small town teacher in love with Dora, the local baker. Dora calls him away from his class one day to let him know that she has created the perfect doughnut -- one that absorbs coffee when dunked and actually floats. Wilson thinks this could make Dora a fortune if she could only advertise it with a radio program. Dora says that would be expensive and they would need a full program of entertainment, as well. Wilson provides the entertainment via his talented class of children and Dora puts up all of her savings to buy the air time, and off Wilson and the kids go to the big city. Things start off well with a song about Dora's doughnuts, but Wilson gets aggravated when little Shirley (Shirley Temple) sneaks on the air and recites a couple of poems. A trio of tap dancing boys perform well, but their act is broken up when their mothers begin arguing very loudly and fighting with the manager of the station. Wilson tries to get back on track with a recitation of Little Red Riding Hood, but Shirley again interferes. Then the women start arguing again and a fight ensues that brings the program to an abrupt end. Wilson returns home dejected, worried that he has ruined Dora -- but it turns out that the disastrous program was a hit with the audience! ~ Craig Butler, Rovi

    Our Gang Follies of 1938
    Briefly digressing from "Our Gang"'s new one-reel format, the series' December 18, 1937 release, Our Gang Follies of 1938, was expanded to two reels -- and the result is often considered to be the best "Gang" comedy of all. Another musical short in the tradition of Our Gang Follies of 1936 and Reunion in Rhythm, this one begins in the basement "theater" of Spanky McFarland, who serves as emcee of a lavish kiddie revue, built primarily around the talents of Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer, "King of the Crooners." Alas, Alfalfa has decided to forego swing music in favor of grand opera, and to that end he walks out of the show and heads to the Cosmopolitan Opera House, where Mr. Barnaby (Henry Brandon), the troupe's bemused manager, jokingly signs Alfalfa to a contract -- effective twenty years later. Falling asleep, Alfalfa begins dreaming of his future, envisioning his name in lights all over Broadway. Alfie's dream turns into a nightmare when he loses his "gift" on the eve of his operatic debut, whereupon the now aged and wizened Barnaby forces the hapless crooner to sing in the streets. Our hero is rescued when he ventures into fashionable Club Spanky, where lead singer Darla Hood and orchestra leader Billy "Buckwheat" Thomas are now making "hundreds of thousands of dollars." Though at first insisting that he's a "slave to his art," Alfie finally breaks down and agrees to return to crooning -- but his dream, and the film, aren't quite over yet. Seldom has the imagination of a child been so vividly conveyed as in Our Gang Follies of 1938, wherein the standard "show-biz movie" cliches are played out and exaggerated for all they're worth. As a bonus, the film scores as both an uproarious comedy and a legitimately entertaining musical. Highlights include Alfalfa's unforgettable renditions of "I'm the Barber of Seville" and "Learn to Croon"; Darla's interpretation of "The Love Bug Will Get You If You Don't Watch Out"; "Loch Lomond", performed by Annabella Logan (who grew up to become fabled jazz singer Annie Ross); and "That Foolish Feeling" and "There's No Two Ways About It", sung and danced by Georgia Jean LaRue and Phil MacMahon. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    The Little Princess
    Shirley Temple's first Technicolor feature, The Little Princess was inspired by the oft-filmed novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Set in turn-of-the-century England, the film finds Temple being enrolled in a boarding school by her wealthy widowed father (Ian Hunter), who must head off to fight in the Boer War. At first, Temple is treated like royalty; her behavior couldn't be more down to earth, but this preferential treatment foments resentment. When her father is reported killed in the war, circumstances are severely altered. The spiteful headmistress (Mary Nash) relegates Temple to servant status and forces the girl to sleep in a drafty attic. She keeps her spirits up by hoping against hope that her father will return, and to that end she haunts the corridors of a nearby military hospital. Queen Victoria doesn't have to make a guest appearance in the tearfully joyous closing sequence, but it does serve as icing on the cake to this, one of Temple's most enjoyable feature films. Reliable Shirley Temple flick supporting actors Cesar Romero and Arthur Treacher are back in harness in The Little Princess, while adult leading lady Anita Louise figures prominently in a sugary dream sequence. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Nancy Drew, Reporter
    The second entry in Warner Bros.' popular detective series, Nancy Drew, Reporter presented young sleuth Bonita Granville at her busybody best. This time, the irrepressible Miss Drew has entered a junior newspaper-reporter contest and, determined to win, insinuates herself into the ongoing investigation of the Lambert murder. Despite overwhelming evidence, Nancy refuses to believe that the murder victim's young ward (Betty Amann) is the culprit and instead shadows a mysterious man (Jack Perry) sporting a cauliflower ear. The brutish stranger and his floozy of a girlfriend (Sheila Bromley) lead Nancy and her faithful sidekick, Ted Nickerson (Frankie Thomas Jr.), on a merry chase that, naturally, ends with the apprehension of the real murderer. Trapped in the Bledenburg Hotel along the way, Nancy and Ted ingeniously call attention to their plight by changing the hostelry's neon sign to "Bedbug Hotel." Juvenile stars Granville and Thomas are this time aided by teenage singer Mary Lee, of Gene Autry Western fame, and child actor Dickie Jones, the latter insisting on imitating Donald Duck. A highlight of the film has the four youngsters performing swing versions of nursery rhymes in order to pay for their Chinese dinner. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

    Waldo's Last Stand
    The Our Gang kids offer to help their pal Waldo (Darwood Kaye) attract customers to his lemonade stand. Redecorating their clubhouse as a lavish nightclub, the kids stage an elaborate floor show, with Darla Hood as the star vocalist. Unfortunately, their efforts attract only one patron -- a surly, stone-faced little kid with a Popeye-the-Sailor voice (Billy "Froggy" Laughlin, making his first Our Gang appearance). Originally released on October 5, 1940, the one-reel Waldo's Last Stand has since lapsed into the public domain, and as a result is the most easily accessible of the MGM Our Gang films (though certainly not the best of the batch!) ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    A Boy, a Girl, and A Dog
    You shouldn't be able to go wrong with a title like A Boy, a Girl, and a Dog, but this 51-minute cheapie comes perilously close. Jerry Hunter is the boy, Sharyn Moffett is the girl, and a dog is the Dog. The boy and girl volunteer the dog for military service. The dog becomes a hero in the K-9 corps. Oh, yes, there's a Lovable Old Gramps, in the person of Harry Davenport. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Mickey
    Not a remake of the 1917 Mabel Normand vehicle of the same name, Mickey was based on Clementine, a novel by Peggy Goodin. The tomboyish title character is played by redheaded Lois Butler, whom Eagle-Lion Studios was trying to build into a major name. During her awkward transition to womanhood, Mickey Kelly takes time out to find an eligible wife for her widowed father George (Bill Goodwyn). Of the two likeliest candidates, bitchy Lydia Matthews (Rose Hobart) seems to have the inside track, but Mickey vastly prefers down-to-earth Louise Williams (Irene Hervey). The best performance is delivered by Skippy Homeier as Hank Evans, the boy who awakens Mickey's own amorous yearnings. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    The Green Promise
    A mule-stubborn farmer is determined to avoid modern technology and nearly destroys what is left of his family in this moving drama. The farmer is saddled with raising his four kids alone and insists on being ruler of the roost in every way. He steadfastly refuses any talk of modern technology when it comes to farming. When his oldest daughter gets a suitor and his youngest tries to join the 4-H club, the father nearly goes on the rampage. He eventually is forced to change his tune when he is injured and unable to work. While recovering, his eldest daughter takes over and begins using some of the new techniques. Sure enough, the farm becomes a success and the father finally sees the light and mends his ways, bringing pastoral happiness to his home. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    Shirley Temple: Biggest Little Star
    In the realm of Hollywood child actors, few stars have burned as bright as that of loveable Little Princess starlet Shirley Temple. With more than a dozen films at Fox featuring the golden-topped moppet between 1934 and 1938 alone, efforts such as Curly Top and Bright Eyes helped to brighten the spirits of Depression-era audiences as the house lights dimmed and the harsh glare of reality was replaced by the warm glow of the projector bulb. As charmed as audiences were by Temple, however, at the age of twelve her career was all but finished; and though she would continue to appear before the camera the success of her early career remained impossible to recapture. In later life Temple would make a name for herself in the world of politics by becoming the first ever woman to serve as White House Chief of Protocol under Presidents Ford and Carter before being appointed U.S. Ambassador to Czechoslovakia by President Bush in 1988. In this release documenting Temple's remarkable career both in and out of the limelight, clips from classic films combines with newsreels, rare photographs, and seldom-seen behind the scenes footage to paint a vivid portrait of one of the most adorable and talented child actors of all time. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
