An Original 1979 (from the first release of this movie in Japan) Vintage Theatrical Tri-Folded Japanese "B2" Movie Poster (measures 20" x 28 1/2") (Learn More)

The Little Princess, the classic 1939 Walter Lang juvenile orphan family musical melodrama ("A great classic comes to life in glorious Technicolor!"; based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett; produced by Darryl F. Zanuck; a rich little girl's father is an English army officer and is sent to Africa in the Boer War and she is put in a fancy boarding school and is treated royally; when he is reported dead, she is turned into a maid! She searches endlessly for her father, with predictable results) starring Shirley Temple, Richard Greene, Anita Louise, Ian Hunter, Cesar Romero (memorable as Ram Dass, the Indian Servant), Arthur Treacher, Mary Nash, Sybil Jason, Miles Mander, Marcia Mae Jones, and Beryl Mercer (as Victoria, the Queen of England). Note that Sybil Jason was born in South Africa, but was a singing and dancing child prodigy in England from the age of 2. When she was 6, Jack Warner saw her perform, and signed her to a contract hoping she could be a child star for Warner Bros. to equal Shirley Temple at 20th Century-Fox. However, after a few movies, including starring opposite Al Jolson in "The Singing Kid", she did not deliver the hoped for results, and Warner Bros. did not renew her contract in 1938. Daryl Zanuck signed her at 20th Century-Fox, putting her with Shirley Temple in this movie. She was supposed to have a major role in "The Blue Bird", opposite Shirley Temple, but most of her scenes were cut from the movie (perhaps because it was feared she would "upstage" Shirley Temple, who was "getting old"!), and she "retired". In 1947, at the age of 18, she married a Navy man, and they had a child and were married for 58 years until his passing in 2006, and she passed away in 2011 at the age of 83!
