Love, Shirley Temple: Movie Costumes, Dolls and Childhood Memorabilia from Her Personal Archives



Love, Shirley Temple: Movie Costumes, Dolls and Childhood Memorabilia from Her Personal Archives

A Theriault Sponsored Special Exhibit

June 20 - 27, 2015

While Shirley Temple, the famously dimpled child star danced, sang and smiled her way into hearts throughout the Great Depression years of the 1930s, her mother, Gertrude Temple, was busy preserving the memorabilia that attended her daughter's more than 40 films of the decade. Film costumes, props, celebrity gifts, dolls, toys, playthings, all were cherished and carefully saved by Shirley and her family for some 80 years...until today.

Now, a number of pieces from the private family archives will be traveling to museums around the United States through the months of May, June and July 2015, under the sponsorship of Theriault’s. You are invited to attend.

The Auction – July 14, 2015

The personal childhood collection of Shirley Temple, comprising nearly 500 costumes, dolls, playthings and memorabilia from 1928-1940, will be presented at auction at The Little Theatre in Kansas City.
