This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

If there were any doubts that little Shirley Temple was all grown up by 1945, those doubts were dissipated by her appearance in Columbia's Kiss and Tell. Based on the mildly risque stage comedy by F. Hugh Herbert, the film casts Temple as impulsive teenager Corliss Archer, who is the only person in on the secret marriage between her GI brother and local girl Mildred Pringle (Virginia Welles). When Mildred becomes pregnant, Corliss can't reveal the marriage, since the Archers and the Pringles aren't overly fond of one another. Thus it is that Corliss herself pretends to be expecting, intending to claim Mildred's baby as her own. She further identifies her next-door boyfriend Dexter Franklin (Jerome Courtland) as the father, opening yet another can of worms. Somehow this mess straightens itself out, but not before several "chancy" scenes and lines of dialogue that must have given the Hollywood censors headaches aplenty.

Teenage Shirley August 8, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Homestead, FL United States  
I truly enjoyed this movie, which is a family comedy in the style of the 40’s.   Some people would say that it’s outdated, since the situations in the plot don’t  take place anymore, but I think it’s a valuable testimony of a particular era.    On top, it’s entertaining all along and it will make you happy.  All the actors are very good, same as Shirley Temple in her teens.

Great People to work with. December 29, 2013
Reviewer: Patricia Bailey from Midvale, UT United States  
I highly recommend the movie detective for those hard to find films.  Four others told me this one was impossible but they did it.  The DVD is very view-able given the age of this film.  I will definitely use them again.
