Shirley Temple... this adorable, energetic & very talented little girl has warmed her way into many hearts - generation after generation!

What is your favorite?

Shirley Temple - The Little Darling Collection [Box Set]



  1. I agree with you. I love Heidi and The Little Princess! They are the best and she is so sweet in them!

  2. I like Heidi best. I remember it the most from seeing it years ago as a young girl. It is such an emotional heartwarming film, and it's also a bit of a Christmas Movie, too! I Luv it!

  3. I'm receiving several e-mails, too, from blog followers who love Shirley Temple - especially in Heidi and The Little Princess.

    Everyone is remarking on her great talent - with singing and tap dancing and delivering her lines perfectly on cue! She's truly incredible!

  4. I Love All Shirley Temple Movies! She is such a Doll!

  5. I Love Shirley Temple! I Love TCM! I Love this Blog!

    Thank You!
