About the film
biography child star
Shirley Temple : America's Little Darling
Release Date: August 31, 1993
There never was a star quite like her. Adored by adults and children alike, at four she already led at the Box Office - ahead of Gable and Cooper. Her films saved a movie studio from bankruptcy, and a President credited her with raising the morale of Depression-weary Americans. Her earliest movies gave a foretaste of her talents and soon would become the songs and dances that helped make those movies immortal. Here she is at her heart-stirring best in films like Little Miss Marker, Now And Forever, The Little Princess, and The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer.
