Shirley Temple: America's Little Darling Previous Broadcasts

Episode #506

KQED 9: Mon, Dec 19, 2016 -- 9:00 PM

By the age of four, Shirley Temple had become a film star adored by adults and children alike, and had already broken records at the box office. Her golden locks, rosy cheeks and million dollar smile were irresistible, and the only thing that surpassed the charm of those qualities was her rare talent for acting and entertaining. This program is a wonderful retrospective of Temple's life and times. Tommy Tune hosts this fun-filled, toe-tapping documentary about the amazingly precocious child star whose films saved a movie studio from bankruptcy, and arguably raised the morale of Depression-weary Americans.
