When Graham Greene suggested this scene was an American pedophilic fantasy, he was blacklisted from ever writing for Hollywood again.
I am not going to enjoy this week's theme…
Graham Greene is in Hell, strapped to a chair with his eyes clamped open, being forced to watch episodes of Kodomo no Jikan and Chocotto Sister for all of eternity.
Are you saying it's not pedophilic? Or are you just using this opportunity to plug your favorite kiddie anime precum generation tools.
Can't we just enjoy the musical number by a child actor from a more innocent age for what it is? Which is to say, competent, cute, and rather dull.
Is it me or are you commenting an awful lot on this video, Nocturno?
Seriously though... what the fuck are grown men doing, in a train carrying over-sized candy props for on a cross country rail ride?
What's more likely?
They were prepared for a small scale musical number, or they're the "strangers with candy" we hear so much about, prowling the railways for veal?
I believe that everyone who is three starring this video fucks children. In the butt.
Let's see... One, two, three... I've only commented four times. That's not what I'd call a lot.
OH SHIT FIVE!
BUT SEESLY MISTA YALL GOT RIGHT THAT MO INCIN' TIMEZ JUS RYE' SUH, YES SUH YOU DO. I WOHN SUBMIT NO MO UPPITY PAYDOMELIA CLIP NOW, NO SUH I WOHN!!

Don't you just want to bounce her on your lap?

Aw, look how she gets all woozy and wobbly and cumdrunk near the end.

5 stars, because I feel genuinely bad for all the grown men who were paid to be second banana to some little singing shit girl, and then had to sit there smiling about it, and probably died poor while she bought mansions.
She was also married to John Agar for a while, which is probably really funny for some reason.

"Into bed you'll hop..."
My friend worked at Crispin Glovers house, and quit because he had huge paintings of Shirley Temple in Nazi gear, with a riding crop up her coochi.
Yeah Crispin has turned her into a perverted icon, even though Salvador Dali did it long before him. If you ever get a chance to see Crispin Clover's "What Is It?" he goes into his Shirley Temple deal a bit in a roundabout way. That image of the whip in her cooch is actually a promotional poster of the movie which was only used in the weirder theaters.
Describing any part of Shirley Temple's corpus as a "coochi" is when I officially check out of the thread...
Listen people, I'm all for cutting down on some of this extreme paranoia and shadow-jumping, too (anybody who accuses Mr Rogers should be killed, obviously), but this is pretty much completely messed up as hell. True story.
I could argue that this clip is simply from an era where bad touch wasn't so heavily present in in our collective social consciousness. But then again, there's something undeniably WRONG about the stage direction here, and oh yes, this is creepy.
It is absolutely wrong. It was an era with such constricted social mores that the weird shit in the culture came out like this. Of course nobody would acknowledge it. The Old World draws a line between "knowing about bad things silently" and "acknowledging bad things publicly." The latter is sin. We don't have those divisions anymore quite so much, unless you are a child of 1st generation immigrants maybe, or a Republican who sends your child to living doll pageants or something.
Maybe Shirley became a Reagan Republican Ambassador so that she didn't have to acknowledge her fucked up role in society. Oooooooh!
All those men, touching her in pretty much every place they're not supposed to. Yeah, this clip quickly goes from innocent, to discomforting, to downright inappropriate.
By the way, I would worry about anyone who favorites this.
If there's anything that the New World produced in abundance, it's pop culture analysts.
The descendants of the men on this train went on to form 12Chan.
