Shirley Goes Home



After a few less-than-stellar films, Shirley Temple's contract with Twentieth Century Fox was terminated early and the former blockbuster child star went into a short retirement. Eight years later in 1948, Fox welcomed the star back for the film, "Mr. Belvedere Goes To College." Here's the publicity blurb that accompanied this vintage photo:

SHIRLEY WELCOMED BACK TO OLD STUDIO

Shirley Temple is shown with her parents Mr. and Mrs. George Temple, at the party which welcomed the former child star back to her old studio in West Los Angeles.
