Great Shirley Temple Story for kids!

"We have loved this film so much that we "wore out" our VHS tape and had to order the DVD! My daughter loves watching Shirley Temple grow up and I love watching how it makes my daughter smile."
Sweet, special film!

"Child Star - The Shirley Temple Story is a wonderful biography of America's favorite kid actress. Although not perfect, it remains one of my favorite due to the subject matter.

Ashley Rose Orr was a bit long in the tooth to play Shirley at some points of the story, but it was generally believable. The period costumes also added a great deal to the authenticity.

If you are a Shirley fan, this DVD belongs in your collection, right next to your real Shirley movies."
