The Little Colonel (22-Feb-1935)

Director: David Butler

Writer: William M. Conselman

From novel: The Little Colonel by Annie Fellows Johnston

Keywords: Comedy

A crusty old colonel from the Confederate Army disowns his daughter Elizabeth after she marries a Yankee; years later, she and her adorable daughter Miss Lloyd move into the house next door. Miss Lloyd (the "Little Colonel") and Col. Lloyd strike up a friendship, and she does her best to heal the family's wounds. One of the best Shirley Temple films, with an unforgettable dance number with Bojangles Robinson. A closing segment in Technicolor was often omitted on television broadcasts.
