bobby pin scene at the end

.. what was that about ? was he implying he had sex with the 4 yr old shirley temple ??? and yes .. that was a odd little short .. a few sexual innuendoes amongst barely older than toddler age kids .. so much for filmmakers being more risque now than before


I doubt if the (very) young actors & actresses had any understanding of the meaning of the words they had been given to say. Adults watching the film at the time wouldn't have seen the implications a modern audience would read into it.

On the other hand, I doubt if the same could be said of the child actors in the Meaning of Life.
