Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938)

The musically talented Rebecca Winstead (Shirley Temple) auditions for the radio role of Little Miss America and wins, but she leaves the studio believing that she had lost. Soon after, Rebecca’s greedy stepfather and legal guardian (William Demarest) becomes disappointed in her losing the audition and decides she’s no longer worth the trouble, and abandons her on the farm of her controlling Aunt Miranda (Helen Westley). Later, Tony Kent (Randolph Scott), the radio advertising executive who approved Rebecca’s audition, and who happens to live next door to the farm, recognizes Rebecca and asks Miranda’s permission to feature her on his radio show. When Aunt Miranda stubbornly refuses, Kent broadcasts Rebecca on his show in secret.
