  • Production

    Shirley Temple was too young to read so her mother taught her the lines by reading them to her. In this way, the child actress learned every line in the script. In one scene when Lionel Barrymore forgot his lines Shirley infuriated him by prompting him. Mrs. Temple hoped the film would be her daughter's big break but it was not to be. Most of Shirley's scenes and all her dialogue were cut except for a few brief moments with Gaynor and Young at film's end. Her name did not appear in the credits (Edwards 45-6).
