Bright Eyes (11-Dec-1934)

Director: David Butler

Writers: David Butler; Edwin J. Burke; William M. Conselman

Keywords: Comedy, Aviation, Child Custody Battle

Shirley Temple's father is killed in an aviation accident, and her mother in an unrelated accident shortly thereafter. Shirley lives in a mansion owned by her mother's employer, becoming the subject of a custody battle. At stake is not just the little girl but also her sizable inheritance. Fellow child actor Jane Withers actually steals scenes from Temple. Brings us On the Good Ship Lollipop, though this is neither a musical nor a children's film.
