Four-year-old star (Temple) has been living with Captain January (Guy Kibbee) ever since he rescued her from a shipwreck when she was a baby. Now their happy life together is unexpectedly threatened when the town's new truant officer tries to take her away from the lighthouse keeper and place her in an institution.

Plucky Penny Hale (Shirley Temple) is excited to return from boarding school to live with her widower dad (Charles Farrell) but when she learns that he's lost his real estate project and they now live in a basement she sets out to win over a crotchety real estate developer - whom she mistakenly believes is ""Uncle Sam"".

An irrepressible orphan Star (Shirley Temple) loves her somewhat unusual life in the loving care of the wonderful old keeper of a lighthouse (Guy Kibbee) until a mean truant officer (Sara Haden) begins a relentless campaign to have Star sent to a boarding school far away.
There will always be speculation as to whether Shirley Temple could have made a successful transition from child star to adult star but by the time she left her teenage years she was married and looking to raise a family so turned her back on Hollywood. She left behind a rich legacy of both short subjects and feature length films. In the latter category is The Little Princess her first technicolour film and included here. In the former category are several shorts made between 1932 and 1934 and are included on two of the discs in this collection. 1. The Little Princess 2. Collection Vol 1 3. Collection Vol2
The Little Princess is living proof that Shirley Temple was much more than just a dimpled tot who could sing and dance on cue. Her tearful reunion with her missing dad (Ian Hunter) in a hospital ward at the conclusion of this classic story should move even the most hardened cynic. Her tears range from joy to hysteria as she tries to tell the shell-shocked soldier that she is his daughter. This is a lavish production with Shirley Temple at 12 doing an expert job as Sara the little miss who has to bear the indignities of a boarding school once her father has been declared dead in the Boer War. The harsh mistress (Mary Nash) has her stripped of all privileges and makes her live in the attic while becoming a servant in the very household where she was once called `The Little Princess by the other girls. There are departures from the original novel since the script is given a `Shirley Temple formula to ensure its success as the right vehicle for her at that time. It succeeds in being a heart-warming tale of a girls courage and determination when it seems that there is no hope of finding her father alive. The ending with Queen Victoria giving Shirley an approving nod is an added delight. One of Shirleys best performances with a wonderful cast of supporting players.
Shirley Temple is arguably the most popular and famous child star of all time. Known for her blond ringlets and her ability to sing and tap-dance she appeared in dozens of films and was Hollywood's biggest box-office attraction from 1936 to 1938. Shirley's popularity and the large gross revenues her films generated transformed the struggling Fox Film Corporation into a major film studio. Temple began her career in a series of Baby Bulesks short subjects that featured children in adult roles that today would be considered highly inappropriate. However when Fox signed her in 1934 the studio abandoned the infant sexpot image and let her be what she really was - an energetic resilient good-natured little girl. Sophisticated and by all measures a highly professional performer Temple had no difficulty upstaging her experienced costar many of whom were veteran performers. Among the films Temple made for Fox were The Little Colonel Curly Top Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm and The Little Princess. Although Temple made a number of films as a teenager among them Miss Annie Rooney (1942) and The Bachelor and the Bobbysoxer (1947) America had seemingly outgrown its infatuation with Shirley. The films were not successful and in 1949 she retired from acting at the age of twenty-one. This film collection features many classic moments from Shirley Temple's relatively short but enormously successful screen career. Episodes Comprise: 1. Glad Rags To Riches 2. War Babies 3.
