I saw "Kathleen" thanks to someone who taped it off TCM.com then put it up on YouTube. It's still on YouTube if you're interested. It has never been released on DVD or VHS.
In Shirley Temple's autobiography "Child Star", there's a photo of her on the set of "Kathleen" with bongos strapped to her waist. She's in a shell-shaped bandstand with other cast members performing a calypso number.
She writes that the stage undulated (moved in a wave fashion), making it very difficult for the dancers to get the scene down right. Everybody had to stay late for constant re-shoots.
So, in the movie from YouTube, the scene is not in there. There's just one song and dance routine but it's not a calypso with the bongos. The one from YouTube ran almost an hour and a half.
