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.

Even though Young People is not a bad movie, it did not fare especially well at the box office. Moviegoers' tastes had changed dramatically from the mid-1930s--when Shirley first burst upon the scene--to 1940. The formulaic plots of Shirley's movies became too predictable too. For some inexplicable reason, for many years Young People was not available in the compilation sets of Temple flicks made available by Twentieth Century Fox. That oversight has been rectified.
