ON THE GOOD SHIP SHIRLEY TEM­PLE

Los Angeles Times - - CLASSIC HOLLYWOOD -

It’s a Shirley Tem­ple-palooza this week. Two of the mop top’s most pop­u­lar films — 1935’s “Curly Top,” in which she in­tro­duced the song “An­i­mal Crack­ers in My Soup,” and 1937’s “Heidi” — screen Sun­day af­ter­noon at the Amer­i­can Cine­math­eque’s Aero The­ater in Santa Mon­ica, the home­town of the De­pres­sion-era su­per­star.

The screen­ings co­in­cide with the Santa Mon­ica His­tory Mu­seum’s “Love, Shirley Tem­ple” ex­hi­bi­tion, which con­tin­ues through June 10. The ex­hi­bi­tion, spon­sored by The­ri­ault’s auc­tion house, fea­tures a wide ar­ray of items from Tem­ple’s child­hood col­lec­tion, in­clud­ing film cos­tumes, gifts, dolls, toys, signed let­ters and pho­tos. The dou­ble bill will be in­tro­duced by Stu­art Hol­brook of the auc­tion house, which will be dis­play­ing Tem­ple mem­o­ra­bilia in the lobby of the the­ater. The auc­tion of Tem­ple’s child­hood items will take place July 14. For in­for­ma­tion on the screen­ing, www.amer­i­cancin­e­math­eque.
