70 years after the fact, most people today probably do not realize how famous Shirley Temple was back in the 1930’s. Imagine bigger than Madonna. Or Britney. Or even Lindsay. Back then, celebrities were positive role models, and this little girl was a beacon of light during a very dark period known as the Depression. She saved 20th Century Fox from bankruptcy and kept a weary nation smiling. This is one of my favorite poses by her, before she became a more manufactured and engineered actress.
