“Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm” (1938)
G, 80 minutes, black and white
Shirley Temple is a young radio entertainer in this film inspired by Kate Wiggin's classic novel. Temple plays the "self-reliant" Rebecca Winstead, a precocious pixie who wins the audition to become Crackling Grain Flakes "Little Miss America" for a new radio broadcast. Fame is fleeting, when she moves to Sunnybrook Farm to live with Aunt Miranda (Helen Westley), an overbearing curmudgeon who absolutely forbids any involvement in show business.
