WHAT A LOVELY CHILD SHE WAS

Shirley Temple...I used to love to watch her sing and dance! She had the cutest little voice!


What a change a year can make! Shirley Temple goes from "toddler" clothes in the 1940 publicity shot at left to the cleanly tailored, young lady look of 1941.

Vive' la Difference! I love the crispness of this outfit and just wish we had a full-length view to see what the skirt is like.

Fifteen-year-old Shirley Temple sits on the diving board behind her home in 1943. Her cute playdress features a white collar and a slightly flared skirt, and note her "grown-up" shoes. (Image courtesy of Rita Dubas and 20th Century-Fox.)

I used to watch her movies too. "Heidi" was one of my favorites! I remember that magical snow globe of her Grandpa's chalet. He seemed so mean when I saw the film as a kid, but really he was a kind man. Those were the days of great stories! Thanks for stirring up special memories. Hugs, Nan

She was a sweet girl, I loved watching her in movies too. What was up with her marrying so young ?? Maybe she wanted to rebel after all her sticky-sweet young childhood ???
She still was a beauty even as she aged.
