About this item
Shirley Temple is arguably the most popular and famous child star of all time. Known for her blond ringlets and her ability to sing and tap-dance, she appeared in dozens of films and was Hollywood's biggest box-office attraction from 1936 to 1938. Shirley's popularity, and the large gross revenues her films generated, transformed the struggling Fox Film Corporation into a major film studio. Temple began her career in a series of "Baby Burlesks," short subjects that featured children in adult roles that today would be considered highly inappropriate. However, when Fox signed her in 1934, the studio abandoned the infant sexpot image and let her be what she really was - an energetic, resilient, good-natured little girl. Sophisticated and by all measures a highly professional performer, Temple had no difficulty upstaging her experienced costar, many of whom were veteran performers. Although Temple made a number of films as a teenager, America had seemingly outgrown its infatuation with Shirley. In 1949, she retired from acting at the age of twenty-one. This film collection features many classic moments from Shirley Temple's relatively short but enormously successful screen career. Includes: "Glad Rags To Riches", "War Babies", "Kid 'N' Hollywood", "Polly Tix In Washington", "Kid 'N' Africa", "Dora's Dunking Doughnuts", "Pardon My Pups", "Shirley Temple: Biggest Little Star of the Thirties", and "The Little Princess".
