The black-sheep of Temple's films.

There should be no wonder why this is one of many people's favorite Shirley Temple films. That Hagen Girl is a far cry from the juvenile-romance-comedy and war-era films that marked the decade. Temple and Regan bring complex characters to life in a very organic display of performance talent. The plot is will thought, mixed up and full of suspense.
The ending of this film disappoints me, but only because it robbed me of the fair chance to be upset if it had ended any differently. No collection of classic films will be whole without this title in the case.
