Description by

Four year old star (Temple) has been living with Captain January (Guy Kibbee) ever since he rescued her from a shipwreck when she was a baby. Now their happy life together is unexpectedly threatened when the town's new truant officer tries to take her away from the lighthouse keeper and place her in an institution.

Product Description:

Poor, perennially orphaned Shirley washes up from a shipwreck into the arms of a photogenically crusty lighthouse keeper who raises the little castaway with pluck and determination, qualities she'll need when the nasty truant officer tries to separate the two. Standard Temple plot, but better than average.

Plot Synopsis:

Star, a curly-topped young girl, is rescued from a shipwreck by Captain January, a lighthouse keeper. Through the years, the orphan and her surrogate develop a close relationship. But their bond is seriously threatened when a meddling truant officer attempts to separate the pair. Will Star and Captain January be forced to say goodbye'
