Pauvre petite fille riche (Poor Little Rich Girl), 1 DVD, 76 minutes
Surprotégée, gâtée de milliers de jouets et d'animaux par son père veuf et riche, la petite Barbara s'ennuie cependant ferme. Envoyée par son père dans une école à New-York, elle se perd un jour dans la grande ville. Elle est recueillie par Tony, un joueur d'orgue accompagné d'un singe, et un couple de chanteurs-danseurs : elle se fait alors passer pour une petite orpheline pauvre. Rentrant dans leur vie simple, elle découvre la véritable liberté...
Meilleurs commentaires des clients
Elle tient une place à part dans l'histoire du cinéma : elle est en effet la première enfant-star à avoir connu une renommée internationale, due en grande partie à sa longue filmographie. Elle fut une véritable icône dans l'Amérique des années 1930 et 1940.
Après sa carrière d'actrice, elle devient diplomate.
Cela ne fut pas du gâteau...

Barbara Barry (Temple) is the coddled young daughter of a soap magnate. But while adored by the household and by her widowed father, Barbara is often lonely, not having anyone her own age to play with and her dad away on business much of the time. As a fix to this, Mr. Barry arranges to have Barbara attend a boarding school. But en route, Barbara's stuffy governess is fatally run down - a tragic scene that is quickly glossed over and never again mentioned - and Barbara ends up wandering the urban streets.
Because this is a Shirley Temple vehicle, Barbara rolls with the flow, doesn't get scared. She's taken in by a kindly organ grinder and, later, by Jimmy and Jerry Dolan, a struggling husband-and-wife vaudeville act. Jimmy and Jerry (Jack Haley & Alice Faye) are trying to make a splash on radio and Jimmy figures this little girl who he learns can sing and dance is their ticket to the big time. And Jimmy's right. Dolan, Dolan & Dolan becomes a featured act on a new radio hour show being sponsored by a soap company. It's just not Barbara's dad's soap company, but his rival's, an old, bushy-eyebrowed, sour-pussed curmudgeon named Peck. Peck has absolutely no shot against the supernaturally cute Barbara. Moments after their initial meet, he's giving her piggyback rides. Later on, when Mr. Peck vehemently rails against Mr. Barry's peace offering, Barbara beamingly instructs him: "I don't know what that means, but why don't you do it?"
So we see Shirley Temple playing "Barbara Barry" playing "Betsy Ware" playing "Bonnie Dolan," and I don't even think this was a problem for her. Apparently, Shirley was so precocious that she ended up memorizing the lines of each character in her movies. "Betsy Ware," by the way, is another guise Barbara assumes in honor of a favorite book character. Gloria Stuart comes in as Peck's secretary, and to insert some grown up romance, her character is avidly pursued by Barbara's father (Michael Whelan).
It's all agreeable fluff, of course, the only disturbing element being the occasional incursions of the neighborhood stalker, not that we really think he poses a threat. In a Shirley Temple movie, creepy asshats like him just don't exist.
POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL has other things going for it, besides Shirley Temple. Jack Haley's hoofing and Alice Faye's warm contralto are two more reasons. "When I'm With You" is a grand song, and I love the climactic number, "I Like A Military Man," which features a fantastic extended tap sequence from Dolan, Dolan, and Dolan. I'm used to Haley and Temple being light on their feet, but it's a delightful treat to see Alice Faye execute the steps with so much panache. So, see, sometimes, you DON'T get upstaged when in a Shirley Temple film.
With Jack Haley, the Tin-Man from the Wizard of Oz.
Little Shirley becomes separated and lost from her nanny in the big city; with a sinister, crook trailing her.
Jack Haley is a poor, down on his luck entertainer, who is humorously and mercilessly needled by his wife, Alice Faye.
Shot on some nice locations, especially the beautiful home.
Humor, suspense, and some song and dance in an interesting story. Charming.
