The Little Princess is a 1939 American drama film directed by Walter Lang. The screenplay by Ethel Hill and Walter Ferris is loosely based on the 1905 novel A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. When her father leaves to fight in the Boer War (1899–1902), Sara Crewe (Shirley Temple) attends an elite boarding school in London. News of her father's death leaves her orphaned and penniless. She works to pay her tuition and board and refuses to believe her father is dead, sneaking off to veterans' hospitals in search of her father.
