the little princess

Saturday 9 March, 2024 11.30 a.m.

A heart-warming family tale of hope in the face of adversity, starring the iconic Shirley Temple as a little girl who refuses to believe her father is dead.

One of Hollywood’s most iconic child stars, Shirley Temple had already notched up a special juvenile Academy Award four years before she starred in Walter Lang and William A Seiter’s heart-warming tale, which was also her first film in Technicolor. She plays Sara, a little girl who is accidentally sent to a boarding school by her father (Ian Hunter) after he is called up to serve in the Boer War. When he is reported dead, the school’s stony-hearted headmistress (Mary Nash) puts her to work in the kitchen. But plucky Sara refuses to lose hope and begins hunting for him.

English and Hindi with English subtitles.
