This isn't my normal movie collection of choice, I will freely admit that. But then, I can see why people like Shirley Temple. Inoffensive, fun, happy but most importantly, short, all of these movies offer a small dose of honeyed filmmaking that isn't going to end like Se7en. I do, however, bewail the lack of extras. A cursory look on the IMDB reveals that Shirley Temple's life is more than worthy of a documentary or three: How did fame effect her, why did she turn to politics in later years, why were there exactly 52 curls in her hair - what did it all mean?. In a box set that purports to be definitive, surely some extras could have been included?
