HEIDI (Theatrical Release USA 1937)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

—a Shirley Temple best film—scores high in entertainment value. Lovable actress, Shirley Temple, has a terrific supporting cast that completely compliments her talents. Lots of heart and sweetness mark this classic film. Despite its age, it’s a perfect addition for the home video library as it has high re-watch value. Bravo!!!
