Dolores and I watched a Shirley Temple movie together yesterday
So, here's the plot:
Shirley is an orphan.
She lives in a beautiful orphanage owned by a handsome rich man.
She has an older sister who is beautiful and who works in the kitchen of the orphanage.
Their parents were actors who died in a car crash.
Shirley has a pony and a duck that her parents used to use in their vaudeville show.
She is so dang cute that the handsome rich man adopts her and buys her a pony cart for her pony and gives her hula lessons.
Shirley wants to raise money for the poor orphans who are not as cute as she is and didn't get adopted, so she puts on a musical and sings Animal Crackers in My Soup and her beautiful sister plays the ukelele.
The handsome rich man falls in love with the beautiful sister and marries her.
Now that is a plot!
