I Love Stewed Missionary . . .
Time for another Baby Burlesk one reel comedy featuring a very young Shirley Temple with Daniel Boone Jr. - yup, this kid is really named Daniel Boone Jr., born in 1930 in Clovis, New Mexico. I don't know one other thing about this young fellow except that he also acted in the comedy short made about the same time as this one called Kid in Hollywood. Shirley Temple is a five year old missionary in Africa named Madame Cradlebait, and her safari is attacked by a wild band of cannibals. These young cannibals quickly put Shirley into their very large stew pot and light the fires under her, adding a bit of salt to the stew and tasting it once in a while to be sure that it is cooking properly. What is little missionary Shirley to do? A young Tarzan-like kid spots her and gives out with a Tarzan-like yell, summoning a large elephant to come and transport him to the cannibal village where his mighty yell scares away the cannibal boys, and little Shirley Temple is so grateful for being saved that she and baby Tarzan . . . . er . . . . I mean little Diaperzan . . . get married and he becomes the henpecked husband who does the dinner dishes and pleads to go out and play with the tigers . . . but of course wifey Cradlebait furrows her eyebrows and the little fellow sighs and gives up all thoughts of the wild life before he saved young Madame Cradlebait, Shirley Temple. Pop a little bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter and enjoy the show.
