Made as a showcase for Pecsy, the six-year-old Hungarian Shirley Temple whose dimples and dances can charm your socks off, this film was sufficiently appealing that the story was purchased by Hollywood as a possible vehicle for Temple. Tasnady-Fekete, who later acted in German films using

the name von Tasnady, is excellent as the love-smitten miss who befriends the tot as a means to win the affection of her widower father, the handsome, wealthy baron Pager. Heartaches alternate with chuckles throughout the well-directed film as it makes its inexorable progress to a happy ending for

the principal players. (In Hungarian; English subtitles.)
