Shirley Temple and "Thank You For Smoking"

I had nothing else to check out of the library, so I checked out a couple of Shirley Temple movies: "Bright Eyes" and "Heidi". Now, I didn't watch "Heidi" yet, but "Bright Eyes" I have to admit was kind of silly, sort of like an extended Little Rascals episode. The highlight of course is "On the Good Ship Lollipop" which really has nothing much to do with the rest of the movie. What is amusing is that Shirley sings this while the airplane is just taxiing down the runway. I didn't realize that the plane wasn't in flight. (Of course, it really is rear-screen projection, but that's another story.)

Anyway, I also watched "Thank You For Smoking". While there were some funny bits, the film went on a little bit too long to prove its point. It reminded me of those Barry Levinson films like "Wag the Dog" or "Man of the Year".
