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.

Shirley Temple 1939 Assassination Attempt On Christmas Eve 1939, child movie star Shirley Temple was appearing on a live radio show in Los Angeles which was both a charity benefit and a means of promoting her new feature movie The Blue Bird. While singing one of the songs from the film, a woman in the audience stood up and pulled a handgun from her purse. Shirley saw the gun and remarkably continued singing--albeit a little bit off key. The woman was subdued and luckily never fired her gun. Police learned that the deranged woman believed that Shirley had 'stolen the soul' of her daughter. Apparently the woman had given birth to a girl on April 23, 1929, but the baby died not long after being delivered. The woman--who was obviously mentally ill--discovered that Shirley Temple was allegedly born on that same day. Employing twisted logic, the woman convinced herself that killing Shirley would be an act of vengeance. Shirley correctly pointed out in her autobiography that the woman had gotten her birth date wrong. Shirley was actually born in 1928. Shirley's mother, Gertrude, had lopped a year off her age to make it appear she was younger than she actually was. Shirley herself was unaware of her correct birth date until she was nearing her birthday in 1941. Only then did her mother tell her she was actually going to be 13 years old instead of 12.

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.

Shirley Temple Bill Robinson Dance From the 1935 movie The Littlest Rebel, Shirley Temple and Bill Robinson try to raise enough money to buy railroad tickets by putting on a dance routine. Shirley was seven years old at the time and was naturally able to match one of the world's greatest dancers step for step. Temple and Robinson were Hollywood's first interracial dance team!

Shirley Temple Birthday 1935 Here's a brief clip, narrated by Lowell Thomas, chronicling Shirley Temple's birthday festivities in 1935. This newsreel says Shirley is celebrating her sixth birthday. That's what Fox studios and Shirley herself thought. Nope. She actually had her seventh birthday in 1935. (Her mom had chopped a year off her age, listing 1929 to be Shirley's year of birth instead of 1928. Mrs. Temple had been advised by the father of another child actor to fudge the year of Shirley's birth to make her appear even younger. It was supposed to enable her to get more acting roles. I guess it worked.) Be that as it may, Shirley was an adorable child--at any age.
