Co-presented with UCLA Film & Television Archive

The irrepressible Shirley Temple, whose earnest enthusiasm and unfaltering cheer buoyed a nation through the Great Depression, shines as an outspoken young orphan who plays matchmaker between her older sister and a wealthy benefactor. (1935, Dir. I. Cummings, 35mm, b/w, 75 min.)

*All ages are welcome. Families with infants and toddlers are welcome in the theater or the lobby, where the film is simulcast on a large monitor.
