Temple Tuesday: At Home with the Blacks

Shirley Temple Black, normally a private person in her adult life, allowed the cameras into her home to shoot a few publicity shots for her upcoming television show, "Shirley Temple's Storybook." Here the kids gather around Shirley while she "reads" them some classic fairy tales. Linda Susan, Lori, and Charles do not seem very thrilled about the photo shoot.

Husband Charles joins the session in this photo; wouldn't you love to know what was playing on the family's home movie projector?

This close-up view allows you to see what Shirley is reading from: "Old French Fairy Tales."

And if you'd care to buy the book that Shirley is reading to her family from, you can find a 1920 first edition on eBay for the low low bargain price of $899.
