Box set containing three classic movies starring child-star Shirley Temple. In 'Baby Take a Bow' (1934), Eddie Ellison (James Dunn) is an ex-con who spent time in Sing-Sing prison. Kay (Claire Trevor) marries him as soon as he serves his time. Five years later, Eddie and his ex-convict buddy Larry (Ray Walker), have both gone straight, and Eddie and Kay have a beautiful little girl named Shirley (Temple). However, Welch has kept a close eye on them for years. He believes in 'once a criminal, always a criminal'. Then, when Eddie's employer's wife's pearls go missing, it comes out that Eddie and Larry both spent time in prison, and they're fired. Welch suspects that Eddie and Larry have something to do with the theft of the pearls. Will Welch prove that Eddie and Larry had something to do with the theft, or will the truth prevail? In 'Bright Eyes' (1934), when a maid is accidentally hit by a car and killed, her young orphaned daughter (Temple) is forced to live with the snooty couple her mother used to work for. A custody battle soon ensues between an aviator who adores the little girl and the couple's crotchety Uncle Ned (Charles Sellon). Finally, in 'Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm' (1938), a radio presenter turns a little girl (Temple) into a star.
