Her signature on a card, framed in the Gallery of History style (to 24x19) with the front cover of a songbook showing her dancing with "Bojangles" Robinson in The Littlest Rebel.
Signature: "Shirley Temple", 3¾x2. Framed with the front cover of a songbook with a cover scene from the 1935 film, The Littlest Rebel, which co-starred Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. This film included the song, "Polly-Wolly-Doodle"; her other memorable songs include "On the Good Ship Lollipop", "Animal Crackers in My Soup", "The Simple Things in Life" and "At the Codfish Ball". A photocopy of the complete songbook is affixed in a pouch on verso. The most popular child actress in history, Shirley Temple (1928-2014) had a succession of hit films in the late 1930s, including Stand Up and Cheer, Bright Eyes, Curly Top, Dimples and Heidi as well as The Littlest Rebel. The child actress, known for her cute curls and adorable dimples, earned a special Academy Award in 1934 "in grateful recognition to her outstanding contribution to screen entertainment". Moderately successful as a teenage star in Miss Annie Rooney (1942) and Since You Went Away (1944), Temple saw her acting career decline thereafter, probably because the public preferred to remember her as an adorable child. She later hosted two TV series, The Shirley Temple Storybook and Shirley Temple Show (1958-1960). After running unsuccessfully for Congress, Shirley Temple Black (she was married to her second husband, businessman Charles Black from 1950 until his death in 2005), enjoyed a second successful career as a diplomat in the 1970s, serving as a U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., to Ghana and to Czechoslovakia, as well as Chief of Protocol at the State Department. Temple, who was a Kennedy Center Honoree in 1998, received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild in 2006. Slightly soiled, light diagonal glue stain at blank right margin. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 23½x19.
