Here’s a tip of the hat to the late Shirley Temple for her acting in Victor McLaglen‘s deathbed scene in John Ford‘s Wee Willie Winkie (’37). Let’s just hang on to this and…I guess we could mention her lightly amusing performance in The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (although Cary Grant, Myrna Loy and Ray Collins were the standouts). In the same way it’s better to remember Elvis Presley from ’54 to ’58 and forget the rest, it’s better to remember Temple as a cute little kid and forget that she became a Republican sometime in the ’60s.
