Curly Top

The pint-sized box office star Shirley Temple was never sweeter than in this musical version of 'Daddy Long Legs' in which she plays an innocent Cupid. When Edward Morgan (John Boles), the rich trustee of an orphanage, first meets little Elizabeth (Temple) and her older sister Mary (Rochelle Hudson), he is immediately entranced and adopts them for an imaginary benefactor. Though both girls come to adore Edward, Mary falls in love with him, unaware he is having the same feelings about her. So it's up to Elizabeth to play matchmaker and bring her two favourite grown-ups together.
