So I was at the library recently and there was a pretty summer display of books and DVDs for children. Featured prominently was a newly purchased set of Shirley Temple movies. Since I like old movies, I thought that I would try one. I took out "Bright Eyes."
Later in the evening, I sat back and viewed shocker after shocker - that is by today's standards.
Just see below and pardon all the exclamation points.
|Five year old Shirley hitchhikes alone to the airport!!!|
|First, this friendly truck driver stops!|
|Shirley tries again and accepts a ride from the man in this car!|
|This is Uncle Ned, the curmudgeon millionaire|
who ultimately has a heart of gold.
He is confined to a wheel chair.
|The house is not appropriately accessible so|
this is how Uncle Ned comes down the stairs!!!
|The Shirley Antithesis Character -|
she is really mean and always screaming.
I think I saw her in the grocery the other night.
|She screams that she wants a machine gun |
and points gun fingers at her father while
making machine gun noises!
|Planes were called ships!|
|American Airlines where I formerly spent|
a lot of time - this plane looks more glamorous!
|A private party for Shirley is held on this plane and|
it taxis around the airport!
News has come that Shirley's mother has been killed!
This car is just pulls on to the runway to flag the plane down!
|At the end of the movie, the mean girl|
makes yet another nasty statement and
receives a terrific slap on the face
- in a court house no less!
