HEIDI
1937, 20th Century Fox, 88 min, USA, Dir: Allan Dwan

This touching adaptation of the classic children’s book stars Shirley Temple in one of her signature roles as an orphan sent off to her grumpy grandfather (Jean Hersholt) in the Swiss Alps. The old man’s heart soon melts under Heidi’s sunny disposition, but then the little girl he’s come to love is taken away to live with a rich family in Germany.
