Description by OLDIES.com:
Shirley Temple remains the best-known child Hollywood movie star of all time and the Shirley Temple Doll(still being manufactured today) continues to be the champion of the doll industry. Since 1934, when the doll was first created, variations of the Shirley doll and associated collectibles have been avidly collected along with hundreds of costumes inspired by Shirley's roles in 57 films between 1931 and 1949. In this book, 350 beautiful color photographs present a nostalgic gallery along with original doll advertising and publicity shots from the movies. The author displays, organizes, and explains all the dolls and known costumes up to the present, and many collectibles related to them. His chronology of Shirley Temple's motion pictures, including the title, studio, date, running time, director and cast of each, is an important reference. Three generations of movie buffs, doll collectors, and vintage fashion enthusiasts alike, who have made the Shirley Temple Doll an American classic, will need to own this new book.
