Shirley Temple: America's Little Darling

Season 1, Episode 6 of 14

Hosted by Broadway veteran Tommy Tune, "Shirley Temple: America's Little Darling" is a retrospective of the child star's life and times. Clips from Little Miss Marker, Bright Eyes, The Little Colonel, Poor Little Rich Girl, Stowaway and The Little Princess reveal the precocious Temple at her heart-stirring best. The program includes clips from films she starred in as a young adult, such as Fort Apache and The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer. Actors Caesar Romero, Alice Faye and Gloria Stuart, as well as former child actors Jane Withers, Darryl Hickman, Dick "Dickie" Moore, Marcia Mae Jones, and Temple's stand-in, Marilyn Granas, share stories. They provide wonderful insight into the character and career of the charming little girl whose films arguably raised the morale of Depression-weary Americans.
