Shirley Temple: American Princess

 
9780006372752: Shirley Temple: American Princess
From Library Journal:

At six, Shirley Temple was the number one box office draw. Her dimpled smile, singing, and dancing raised the spirits of Depression-era families. In this admiring account, Edwards, also the biographer of Vivien Leigh and Margaret Mitchell, writes of Temple's lifeher status as this century's most famous child star, her decline at adolescence, her reincarnation as a political figure, and her courageous, and barrier-breaking, acknowledgement of her struggle with breast cancer. Tales of Temple's childhood and relationship with her indomitable mother are fascinating, but the book fades from there. Also, Edwards's footnoting is annoying. Less than his best, but never underestimate the appeal of "La Temple." Could be a best seller. Rosellen Brewer, Monterey Cty. Lib., Seaside, Cal.
