Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938)

65EPISODE # 10:  Made during the Depression, when America desperately needed to feel good, Shirley Temple is a ray of sunshine in her role as the young orphan, Rebecca, who auditions for a spot on a radio show. Today, she still ranks as the greatest child entertainer in history and her films put a smile on our face and warm our jaded hearts.
Author, filmmaker, and host of the Dennis Anyone? podcast Dennis Hensley is our Audience of One and joins James and Lara to talk about being the ambassador to the good ship lollipop, Shirley’s amazingly AWESOME tap dance number with Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, and the original black-and-white version of the film vs. the modern colorized version.
