Sheet Music inscribed and signed: "To James Harris/Best Wishes/Shirley Temple Black/1997" and "Alice Faye", 6 pages, 9x12. Titled: "Goodnight My Love". Words and music by Mack Gordon and Harry Revel, from the film, Stowaway, which starred Shirley Temple, Robert Young and Alice Faye. ©1936, Robbins Music Corporation, New York, N.Y. 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. ALICE FAYE (1915-1998) was a chorus girl who rose to movie stardom in such films as In Old Chicago (1938), Rose of Washington Square (1939) and Tin Pan Alley (1940). She also co-starred with husband Phil Harris in a popular radio comedy series. Semi-retired thereafter, Faye remained popular in TV and nightclub appearances. Creased. 3-inch separation at upper edge and 4¾-inch separation of mid-vertical fold of cover. Back cover is lightly soiled, ½-inch tear at upper blank margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
