Another collection of classic movies starring Shirley Temple. In 'Susannah of the Mounties' (1939), the sole survivor of an Indian attack, orphan girl Susannah Sheldon (Temple) becomes the mascot of the Canadian Mountie outpost headed by Superintendent Standing (Moroni Olsen). Mountie Angus 'Monty' Montague (Randolph Scott) and his sweetheart (and Standing's daughter), Vicky (Margaret Lockwood), appoint themselves as Susannah's unofficial parents, doing their best to help the girl overcome her terrible ordeal. In 'Just Around the Corner' (1938), Penny Hale (Temple) is excited to return from boarding school to live with her widower dad (Charles Farrell), but when she learns that he's lost his real estate project, and they now live in a basement, she sets out to win over a crotchety real estate developer - whom she mistakenly believes is 'Uncle Sam'. In 'Captain January' (1936), a lighthouse keeper finds a little girl (Temple) who is washed ashore tied to some wreckage. He adopts her and they become inseparable. Eventually her real family finds her and tries to take her away.
