Adorable and display-worthy vintage 8x10-inch matte-finish black and white portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in green fountain pen when she was a child. In fine condition, with a few exremely mild handling bends and scattered patches of very faint silvering in the darker areas, completely invisible when the photograph is viewed head-on. Bright, bouncy, impossibly cheerful Shirley Temple was easily the most popular and famous child star of all time. Entering films at age 3, she acted, sang and danced her way into millions of hearts in classic films like Stand Up and Cheer! (1934), Little Miss Marker (1934), Baby Take a Bow (1934), Bright Eyes (1934), Curly Top (1935), Captain January (1936), Poor Little Rich Girl (1936), Dimples (1936), Heidi (1937), Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938), The Little Princess (1939), and, in adolescence, Since You Went Away (1944), I'll Be Seeing You (1944), and The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947). After phasing out of her movie career, she later served as an ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.
