1938 was a fine year for films. In addition to those mentioned, I would like to add an excellent but underrated Bette Davis film, The Sisters; Alexander Nevsky; Alexander's Ragtime Band; The Joy of Living, which features one of Irene Dunne's best songs ("You Couldn't Be Cuter); Too Hot to Handle; Drums; Kidnapped; and, on the Shirley Temple front, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.
