The Blue Bird (1940) - Shirley Temple Color Version DVD
The Blue Bird (1940)
Based on Maurice Maeterlinck's play of the same name, this absorbing film earned Academy Award® nominations in 1940 for Best Cinematography and Best Special Effects. In a rare departure from her usual bubbly screen persona, Shirley Temple plays a selfish, spoiled little girl named Mytyl, who doesn't appreciate her loving family. In fact, only after a good fairy sends Mytyl and her brother (Johnny Russell) on a journey to find "the bird that means happiness" does she end up discovering what true happiness is - and it's right in her own home!
Shirley Temple, Nigel Bruce
