Little Shirley helps her big brother find a girlfriend
18 October 2005 | by tinman19602003See all my reviews

Poor Sonny (Coughlan), he has a beat up car and most of the other high school boys make fun of him. When a beautiful new girl (Blackford) moves in next door, Sonny and his kid sister Mary Lou (Shirley Temple) make friends with her. The local wealthy masher shows up at a party and tries to take her away from Sonny and all HECK breaks loose when he insults the new girl. Director Henry J. Edwards is better known for two of his other films: Juggernaut and Scrooge (1935). Junior Coughlan plays Shirley's brother in at least one more film, "Pardon My Pups". This is a cute, but rather thin story in which a very young Shirley shows off her talents. Not a very big budget, International Pictures wasn't a very big studio, Director Edwards was lucky to get away from there and do better work.
