I was very young watching these programs in their original broadcasts (in B&W, of course), but I can tell you they were magical for a preadolescent. I was very upset when I found out the show was being taken off the air.

Presumably because they were the only episodes owned by the Shirley Temple Black Estate.  NBC still holds the masters for the rest of the series.

So why hasn't NBC issued these?  I should think that now would be a really good time for them to do so!  If NBC Universal doesn't want to issue the Shirley Temple Storybook Series themselves, perhaps they could arrange a sub-licensing deal with Mill Creek Entertainment, as they did for the 40 Episode Howdy Doody DVD Set a few years back. 

 

CHEERS!

I would have thought anything with Shirley Temple would be an automatic seller on DVD... your guess is as good as mine.

The sans Shirley Temple featured SHIRLEY TEMPLE STORYBOOK episodes, and POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL in its original Glorious Black & White remain unreleased, while her "Baby Burlesk" one reelers are all available on seemingly endless Public Domain Video issues--Just one of life's many imponderables!

 

CHEERS!

Turner Classic Movies has aired Shirley Temple's POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL on occasion.  This seems to be the best way (For Canada and U.S. Viewers, at least!) to see this in its original Black & White these days!

 

CHEERS!

"Our Little Girl" was also released on DVD in the UK & Australia (the same colorized transfer from the old VHS)... a lovely little film.

Why does Fox not release Our Little Girl and Poor Little Rich Girl in the US ? They should be part of the fox set  as they were the VHS  fox set. What is up with that?

Hi smiley12!

 

I did mention OUR LITTLE GIRL in a previous post as only being available on a Region 2 DVD.  The worst thing about this and POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL, is the lack of availability in their original Black & White!

 

Absolutely no clue as to why 20th Century Fox Entertainment chose not to release the above Titles in Region 1.  I can only guess that perhaps the VHS Sales for these were weak in comparison to Shirley's other Films.  This is just pure speculation on my part!

 

CHEERS!

 

Tony
