In the scene where John Boles sings "It's All So New To Me," Shirley Temple appears in various paintings in the drawing room. According to Temple's autobiography, "Child Star," a scene was shot where she appeared nude, as Cupid, painted from head to toe in gilt paint. The scene had to be completed quickly before the paint clogged the pores of her skin. Apparently, the scene was cut before the film's theatrical release, and presumably no longer exists.
Curly, you're an old flatterer.
Elizabeth: Is that something bad?
In the song "Animal Crackers In My Soup" Shirley Temple sings "Monkeys and rabbits loop de loop". The lyric was written as "Monkeys and lions loop de loop" but Shirley sang the wrong lyrics. There are no rabbit-shaped crackers in animal crackers (and also rabbits are not generally part of a traveling circus) but there are lions amongst the animal shapes.
The introductory title credit is followed by an extreme close-up of Shirley Temple's curly top. Shirley then raises her head, and shakes her curls, smiling broadly all the while.
