Shirley Temple First On-Screen Kiss The 1942 comedy Miss Annie Rooney was a bit of a dud. Fourteen-year-old Shirley Temple plays the title character--a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who becomes the romantic interest of wealthy Marty White (played by Our Gang alumnus Dickie Moore). The flick is remembered by movie and trivia buffs for one awkward scene in which Shirley is romantically kissed for the first time in her storied movie career. Dozens of news photographers were present to record the "end of innocence" moment for posterity. As you will see, it wasn't much of a kiss. Decades later Moore--who was utterly terrified to be the first actor to woo Shirley--described the kiss as "tepid" and "pathetic". It was the first time Moore, who was 16, had ever kissed a girl either on-screen or off-screen.

WWII Hawaii Overprint Money After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, there was a legitimate fear that the Japanese would next launch a full-scale invasion of the Hawaiian Islands and occupy them. Among the consequences if that nightmare scenario actually unfolded was that all the US paper money in Hawaii would be seized from banks, businesses and private citizens and be used to finance Imperial Japan's war machine. Accordingly, a remarkable decision was made: During the first half of 1942, Hawaii's residents were ordered take their paper money to special collection areas and exchange it for new bills. Each bill had a special overprint of the word HAWAII on its reverse side. If Hawaii ever did fall to the Japanese, the US government would immediately declare the Hawaii overprint bills to be worthless. The old bills that were exchanged--about $200 million of them--were burned under the supervision of the American military. Such a calamity never occurred, of course. The overprint notes are still acceptable as legitimate US money today, although they rarely are found in general circulation.

Shirley Temple - Tra La La La From the 1940 comedy-drama Young People, Shirley Temple performs the musical dance number Tra La La La with co-stars Jack Oakie and Charlotte Greenwood. The plot has the film's three stars playing a vaudeville family who choose to retire from the stage and move to a rural New England community to live a normal life. However, their presence is resented by the stodgy locals who dislike showbiz folks--and anything else that differs from their ways. This is the last sequence of the film. It also turned out to be the swansong of 12-year-old Shirley's career with Twentieth Century Fox--the studio she had single-handedly saved from bankruptcy. Her contract was not renewed as her box-office appeal had diminished markedly as Shirley approached her teenage years. Shirley's two co-stars in this movie both died within a month of each other in the late 1970s.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - Radio Debut The 1944 movie Meet Me in St. Louis introduced the melancholy song Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. During the Christmas season of 1944 Judy Garland performed it on Paul Whiteman's radio program. Note that Judy sings the original lyrics that are true to the movie. Most cover versions don't use the "muddle through somehow" line.

Ross Sisters - Contortionist Dancers You have to watch this amazing clip! The Ross Sisters--Aggie, Maggie, and Elmira--were three teenage girls from Texas who combined average singing skills, a bit of dancing, acrobatics, and some startling contortions in their unique act. This is a clip of the Ross Sisters in the 1944 MGM technicolor musical Broadway Rhythm performing Solid Potato Salad. It is their only known performance that was recorded on film. When this movie was made, the girls were 14, 16 and 17. Their memorable appearance in this film earned them a certain degree of acclaim and some stage bookings afterwards--including a United Kingdom tour in 1946 where they gave a command performance for King George VI. By 1950, however, the sisters' showbiz careers had sputtered to an end. All three had gotten married, and there is no record of them performing anywhere after that year.
