The Shirley Temple Scrap Book

They called her "Little Miss Miracle." With the wink of an eye and a dimpled grin, Shirley Jane Temple brightened smiles, melted hearts, and set toes a-tappin'. Born the year before the Great Depression, indescribably adorable Shirley was just what the world needed to lift itself out of the doldrums. She was, said Irvin S. Cobb in presenting Shirley a special Oscar in l935, "the world's greatest gift of joy and happiness."
Lifelong fan and renowned collector Loraine Burdick has compiled this treasure chest of memories of the irresistible youngster with the fifty-two perfect curls. Featuring never-before-published photos, glorious color portraits, and rare publicity pieces, The Shirley Temple Scrapbook takes us into Loraine's very own magical place dubbed "Shirleyland."

The Scrapbook chronicles Shirley's stellar career, from her start in the Baby Burlesks to her standout performances in such films as Bright Eyes and Captain January. We become privy to how Shirley became the first toddler to promote the film industry; why her hand-holding song-and-dance routine with Bill "Bojangles" Robinson in The Little Colonel was considered so controversial; and what made her shine among Hollywood legends Ginger Rogers, Claudette Colbert, Cary Grant, Rudy Vallee, Gary Cooper, and Carole Lombard to name just a few!
