Sparkle, Shirley, Sparkle! (part 3)

In December of 1934 Fox Film Corporation released Bright Eyes, the first film that gave Shirley Temple top billing. It also introduced her first big hit song. This was the tenth and last film Shirley made in 1934 and the fourth one after Little Miss Marker. With all that camera time under her belt it is no wonder that she moves with such confidence and poise. At at the same time you can tell that she is only a six-year-old child. A talented six-year-old child but a child just the same. Below is Shirley's big musical number, On The Good Ship Lollipop. Alongside her is her old friend James Dunn. The other men are supposedly members of the University of California football team.
