Review:

This charming story was first released in 1936, 70 years ago, but with the new color remastering process you will find it hard to believe this child star, who is now 78 yrs old, isnít actually only 8 yrs old today. This new process really gives the movie a new life.

In Dimples, a 1936 classic about a poor side of town 6-year-old street entertainer, sharing a rundown apartment with her scoundrel of a grandfather, the Professor. When Dimples and her group of street urchins of performers are asked to perform at a rich lady's party, the Professor pulls a fast one ruining everyone's good time by five-fingering the guests' furs. Dimples is caught by the police but negotiates her freedom from her hostess, Caroline, with nothing more than her dimples and innocence. The lonely widow is so taken by Dimples that soon she's offering the money-grubbing but goodhearted Professor Five thousand dollars for the girl. No amount of money, of course, could buy Dimples from her grandpa, whom she considers "a gentleman and a scholar," but when he winds up in a heap of trouble for letting $800 slip through his fingers, money that was supposed to go toward costumes for a play in which Dimples stars. The professorís only hope is to cash in on Caroline's desire to acquire Dimples. Bill Robinson directs all Temple's dance numbers, which is one reason why Shirley Temple became a movie icon. This multitalented actress touches the hearts of all in this sentimental film. This movie is vintage Shirley. If you enjoy a movie that pulls on your heart stings with many musical numbers you will enjoy this movie. Itís a great addition to any collection.
