I love "Biography" and this one is especially close to my heart. When I was growing up, we often watched Shirley Temple movies on TV and I just fell in love with this beautiful little girl with the amazing attitude and acting and dancing talent. My favorite parts of the DVD are when Shirley was acting with Bill (Bojangles) Robinson. It's clear that they were not only a great dance duo, they had a special bond as friends which kept them perfectly in sync. This is a great video portrait.

Well done. Inspired me to purchase and read Temple' autobiography "Child Star".

The Biography of Shirley Temple
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like history videos you will like this one. This video gives a lot of good information about Shirley Temple. I like how it gives you the list of all the movies Shirley Temple has done. If you like Shirley temple this movie is worth seeing. This movie not only had the telling of shirley temples life it had interviews with close relations shuch as actros and actresses that worked with her and it had speeches that Shirley Temple told people. I did not like how they told about where she was living at the time due to the fact thast it dates the film. However, I liked how they showed you seens that were cut out in the movie and told you about the time she was living in and what was going on at that time. This Biography of Shirley Temple was one of the best Auto-biographies I have ever seen done on anyone."

"I remember how much I enjoyed watching this biography several years ago when it aired on A&E. At that time I really did'nt know much about Shirley Temple aside from her being married and acting as an Ambassador, so this biography was quite a treat! Peter Graves did an excellent job narrating (as always)and it included clips from practically all her films and the details of her life at that time. I always find it even more interesting of the stories behind the movies.
Naturally after watching Shirley Temple's biography I wished Twentieth Century Fox would start releasing her films. There was a 3 movie collection advertised on tv that seemed too expensive for 3 measley films. Then years later Fox finally started to release most of Shirley's films on video for about 5.99 each at Target. Needless to say they sold like hotcakes and I did'nt waste time collecting them all! Although I've noticed that alot of these films are being converted to dvd I have no intention of buying them all over again, considering most of her films were only about an hour long. However, I will be purchasing this biography on dvd to add to my collection and enjoy the lifestory of the greatest child star of all-time!!!!!"
