Top 5 Greatest Shirley Temple Movies

Shirley Temple movies were a staple of my childhood. I used to watch her films over and over and loved everything about her; from her signature curls to the frilly pink dresses she loved to wear. In memory of one of my favorite actresses, here are my all time favorite Shirley Temple movies.

Baby Take A Bow



An adorable film about family and right and wrong, this film shows her signature dimples and laugh, making the entire family smile. One of my favorites for the storyline and I have always loved the gorgeous pink dress she wear for her birthday. Does it come in my size?





Based on the 1880 novel by Johanna Spyri, the film shows the great love a child has for her grandfather, and made me always want to call my grandpa just to tell him how much I loved him. I credit this movie with making me have an even stronger bond with him because I learned how important he is in my life. A great family message in this film.


The Little Colonel



Based on the novel by Anne Fellows Johnston, this has to be my favorite Shirley Temple movie of all time. Shirley’s character is feisty, adorable and you can’t help but love her. My favorite part in this movie has to be the first pairing of Bill “Bojangles” Robinson and Shirley Temple. They ask have their famous step tap dancing scene together. If you are to see any Shirley Temple movie, this is the one you want to see.


The Blue Bird



This movie was Shirley Temple’s first flop at the box office. The movie was supposed to be 21st Century Fox’s answer to MGM’s “Wizard of OZ.” Unfortunately, it did not do well and was the start to the decline of Temple’s childhood acting career. Nonetheless, this movie shows you a character you do not like in the beginning, then turns into someone you can truly relate to. I loved the use of color in the film, and also the role of Tylette the cat.


The Little Princess



I still remember the first time I saw this movie and how it brought tears to my eyes. Years later, when I saw the Alfonso Cuaron version, I loved it as well for the way it reminded me of the Shirley Temple version.
