A Little Princess

My mother was born the same year as Shirley Temple, and since she loved theater and had a beautiful singing voice, she totally identified with Shirley. One of my favorite books growing up was a collection of stories from Shirley Temple movies likie Heidi, The Little Colonel , Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm and The Little Princess.  The book had a lot of photos from all the films and it was a lovely book to read and savor. So of course, I have seen all these movies, including the riches to rags and back to riches story of the Little Princess. This one from 1939: templeprincess But last night, I saw a version I had never seen, made in 1995, which took the story and set it in NYC. I was totally captivated once again by this story . You remember, the little girl, adored by her father is sent to boarding school while her father fights WWI. She is very popular at school and everything is rosey until they get word that her father had been killed in the war and she becomes a servant at the scbool... yadda yadda yadda... happy ending. littleprincess1 It reminded me of  my mother and it made me smile. I guess that was my day after Mother's Day gift sent from above.

World's Worst iPod:Terence Trent D'Arby "Sign Your Name"
"Sign Your Name," Terence Trent D'Arby's follow-up to "Wishing Well" was on the radio a lot in 1988...it made it up to #4 on the charts in the United States. Its repetitive chorus is almost hypnotic, and most likely ear worm inducing (sorry.)...
