Shirley Temple, The Little Colonel
The thing I love most about watching Shirley Temple movies? Shirley Temple!
However, I also love seeing the wide variety of co-stars she had. Take The Little Colonel (1935), for example. How’s this for a cast? Shirley Temple, Lionel Barrymore, Hattie McDaniel, Evelyn Venable, and Bill Robinson. While Shirley is more than worth watching these films for, you never quite know who will show up!
There is just something relaxing, peaceful, fun, comforting, and just so right about watching a Shirley Temple movie. I’ll tell you something that makes it even sweeter – watching it with someone else. Whether it’s with an adult you love or a child who hangs the moon and stars in your world – the best things in life are those shared. Watching Shirley Temple films with children is especially wonderful.

If you are, like me, a collector, you can find the Ultimate Shirley Temple DVD Collection on Amazon. If you simply want to “rent” her movies to watch, you can find the adorable little ray of sunshine on Amazon Prime!
