About this item
Shirley Temple stars in this fairy tale about imaginary lands and the true values of kindness and happiness. The journey begins when Mytyl (Temple) captures a unique bird in the royal forest, then refuses to pass it on to her bedridden best friend. That night, Mytyl is visited in a dream by a fairy who sends her and her brother, Tytyl (John Russell), on a quest for the bluebird of happiness. Accompanied by their pet dog and cat, Mytyl and Tytyl set out on an adventure into the past, the future, and the Land of Luxury--only to find the bluebird in a most unexpected place. Much like THE WIZARD OF OZ, which was released the previous year, THE BLUE BIRD begins with a black-and-white prologue, then switches to lavish Technicolor when the children enter fantastic lands, a transformation that highlights the film's dazzlingly magical soul.
