The Poor Little Rich Girl is a 1936 American musical film directed by Irving Cummings. The screenplay by Sam Hellman, Gladys Lehman, and Harry Tugend was based on stories by Eleanor Gates and Ralph Spence, and on the 1917 Mary Pickford vehicle of the same name. The film focuses on a child (Temple) neglected by her rich and busy father who meets two vaudeville performers and becomes a radio singing star. The film received a lukewarm critical reception from The New York Times, and, in 2009, was available on videocassette.
Barbara Barry is the young daughter of wealthy Richard Barry, a recently widowed soap manufacturer. An accident separates Barbara from her father and the girl masquerades as an orphan. She attracts the notice of two vaudeville performers, Jimmy Dolan and his wife, Jerry, who put her in their radio act, posing as their daughter. With the help of advertising executive Margaret Allen, the trio become an overnight success. Barry hears his daughter on the radio and the two are reunited. Subplots involve a romance between Barry and Allen, and a crook trying to kidnap Barbara.
