Temple shows compassion
25 December 2018 | by vikitoriaSee all my reviews

She is still young but growing up, Shirley Temple was the doll of the century. Granted this shows her as a survivor of a mass Native American killing, but it's taking me a long time to get into it. She has the compassion down pat, but where is the compassion for the Natives? I mostly wanted to see her perfowith Randolph Scott and the little Native boy, but it's getting hard for me to continue watching.
