Tuesday, June 21, 2005 Antiques and unique Collectibles Sherley Temple Black Autograph, 1990

Shirley Temple Black Autograph auf on card, signed with black pen „ Shirley Temple Black, 1990 „. At the left is a small photo of the young Shirley with a basket.

In 1933, Shirley starred in an imitation Our Gang series called the Baby Burlesks, performing astonishingly accurate impressions of Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich. After a handful of minor roles she created a sensation by stopping the show with her rendition of “Baby Take a Bow “ in Fox's Stand Up and Cheer. She was promptly promoted to her own starring features, literally saving Fox (and its successor 20th Century Fox) from receivership, and earned a special Oscar in 1934 “ in grateful recognition to her outstanding contribution to screen entertainment.”
