Kid N Hollywood (1933)

Tonight, I took some screenshots of my latest arrival, "Kid N Hollywood" (1933), an early Shirley Temple short on a 200' reel with sound from Blackhawk. I was quite pleased with this print. It was not listed as a Shirley Temple film, and I think that went in my favor for winning it at the starting bid of U.S. $5. In these Baby Burlesks, toddlers are playing adult roles (very innocently, I should add). There were eight of them produced between 1932 and 1933. This particular one, really shows (in my humble opinion) the emerging talents of Temple as a child star. I was happy that my daughter sat down with me and watched this through. It even garnered some laughter.

We then watched an Andy Panda cartoon titled "Knock, Knock" (1940) on a 200' color/sound reel from Universal 8. It was the first appearance ever of cartoon character Woody Woodpecker.

Sorry, I failed to clean the aperture tonight!

Great screenshots Tim, the Shirley Temple looks an interesting film.

These early Temple shorts were somewhat similar to the Our Gang/Little Rascals comedies, except the cast consisted entirely of very young children.

Got only one myself ... Polly-Tix in Washington (wasn't it?)

Personally I prefer Little Rascals

Yes Vidar, "Polly Tix" is one of those. They don't come close to the entertainment quality of the Little Rascals comedies, but I've always found that they have a certain charm to them. I agree with you though, I prefer the Rascals. The quality on these Blackhawk prints is better than any versions I've seen on unmentionable formats.

Of the eight Baby Burlesks,the first THE RUNT PAGE is totally unavailable,perhaps a lost film. Six are available in 8 mm sound, KID IN AFRICA, KID IN HOLLYWOOD, GAD RAGS TO RICHES, THE PIE COVERED WAGON, KID'S LAST FIGHT, POLLY-TIX IN WASHINGTON, (I have them all!) And the second, WAR BABIES is available only in silent copies,commonest of which is from Ken. All the others are available from a multitude of distributors, the copies coming from various reissue editions,since they were PD. Please correct me if I am wrong!!

Thanks Panayotis! That info is VERY helpful as I was wondering how many of these were available with sound. It's good to know there is another here who enjoys these shorts.
