Temple Tuesday: Happy 89th!



For what would have been Shirley Temple's 89th birthday last Sunday, April 23, I am posting this shot from "The Little Princess." Released in 1939, this movie is often viewed as the pinnacle of her childhood career, and the last one to make a really decent profit. Shirley is shown blowing out the candles on her birthday cake...right before she gets kicked to the curb by Miss Minchin (Mary Nash) when it's discovered that her father is penniless. Actress Anita Louise is on the left-hand side of the photo. The two girls peering over Anita's shoulder are Marcia Mae Jones and Deidre Gale.



Here's a previously posted shot of Shirley with Deidre and Marcia, right before she dumps a bucket of ashes over the two horrid girls.



Well, they were horrid in the movie. I'm sure they were much nicer in real life.
