| Shirley Temple No Surprise
Bratty 12-year-old Shirley Temple (as Kathleen Davis) sees more of her servants than wealthy widower father Herbert Marshall (as John Davis). She has an imaginary life as a nice girl, and enjoys sneaking out to visit ethnic New York friend Felix Bressart (as Schoner). Family happiness is in the offing when Mr. Marshall brings home fiancée Gail Patrick (as Lorraine Bennett), but Ms. Temple immediately recognizes the woman as wicked. Temple would rather father marry nice child psychologist Laraine Day (as Angela "Angel" Kent), who is brought in to figure out what the heck is wrong with Temple. This MGM feature was considered the first of Temple's comeback attempts, after her successful career at Fox ended.
