TEMPLE-PKG


For a decade in the 1930's Shirley Temple was the biggest little thing to

hit the motion picture screen.

There was something about her energy and optimism something about her

golden curlsdimpled smile and twinkling eyes that helped people in the midst

of the Great Depression forget their problems and become absorbed in hers.

Nats

"Heidi"

"crying.grandfather.I'll never see you again."

Shirley Temple started dancing at two and acting at three, by the time she

was five she was stealing the show:

Nats "baby take a bow"

"I go where you go.any place will do"

Before filming a scene her mother would tell her "Sparkle, Shirley, Sparkle"

and she did dancing and singing her way through hit.

Nats "the littlest rebel"

dancing with bojangles

After hit.

Nats "Bright Eyes"

"I don't care what you saw there is a Santa Claus

After hit.:

outstanding contribution to the silver screen:

nats 1934 oscars

"Oh, thank you very much Mommy may I go home now laughter

For three straight years she lead the box officea drink was named after her,

and children copied her curls.

careermarrying a San Francisco businessman and entering the world of

politics

child star:
