In this 1940 film—12-year-old Shirley Temple's last on her 20th Century Fox contract—she plays Wendy, whose vaudevillian parents (Jack Oakie and Charlotte Greenwood) decide to retire from show biz so that their daughter can have a normal life. They are not welcome in the small town where they settle, until a storm shows what the family is made of. Clips from Temple's earlier films fill in Wendy's background, and the trio performs the snazzy numbers "Tra-la-la-la" and "Fifth Avenue."
"One of the more charming of the miracle child's films. Mr. Oakie and Miss Greenwood make a couple of amusing hoofers, and there are several nice songs to catch the ear."—NYTimes
