    When Sara Crewe's father, Captain Crewe arrives to enroll Sara (Shirley Temple) in Amanda Michin's (Mary Nash) exclusive school they are snobbishly turned away. When the snooty headmistress learns that Crewe is a major shareholder in a South African diamond mine, she quickly accepts his generous check and gives Sara the royal treatment, including the best room in the school and a choice seat at the dinner table. Later, when she learns that Sara's father has most likely been killed in action and Sara's bills won't be paid, she sticks Sara in an unheated attic room and relegates her to the servitude of a scullery maid to pay off the insurmountable debt. Cesar Romero, as the kindly Indian servant, Ram Dass, helps Sara out of her servitude. Arthur Treacher is wonderful as Bertie Minchin, who gets even with his overbearing Headmistress sister by helping Sara find her wounded father. Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
