El Brendel in Little Miss Broadway

Little Miss Broadway

1938 PG

Betsy Brown Shea (Shirley Temple) is a talented orphan who boards in a hotel for entertainers. When grumpy owner Sarah (Edna May Oliver) threatens to boot her, Little Miss Broadway starts to tap her toes to the tune of "Be Optimistic," "If All the World Were Paper" and more. Future U.S. Senator from California George Murphy displays his hoofing skills as Temple's dance partner. Jimmy Durante and Phyllis Brooks co-star; Irving Cummings directs.
