Sherley Temple Black Autograph, 1990

Shirley Temple Black Autograph on card, signed with black pen " Shirley Temple Black, 1990 ". At the left is a small photo of the young Shirley with a basket. In 1933, Shirley starred in an imitation Our Gang series called the Baby Burlesks, performing astonishingly accurate impressions of Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich. After a handful of minor roles she created a sensation by stopping the show with her rendition of "Baby Take a Bow " in Fox's Stand Up and Cheer. She was promptly promoted to her own starring features, literally saving Fox (and its successor 20th Century Fox) from receivership, and earned a special Oscar in 1934 "in grateful recognition to her outstanding contribution to screen entertainment."

With such tailor-made vehicles as Bright Eyes (1934), Curly Top (1935), The Little Colonel (1935), Dimples (1936), and Heidi (1937), Temple was not only America's number one box-office attraction, but a merchandising cash cow, inspiring an unending cascade of Shirley Temple dolls, toys, and coloring books.

Perhaps the best of her post-child star roles was spunky army brat Philadelphia Thursday in John Ford's Fort Apache (1947), in which she co-starred with her first husband, actor John Agar (the union broke up after four years when Agar began to resent being labeled " Mr. Shirley Temple "

Retiring on her trust fund in 1950, she wed a second time to business executive Charles Black, a marriage that would endure for several decades and produce a number of children.

Her signatures as Temple Black are scarcer.

Size: 5.5 x 3.5 in. Fine condition.
