By early 1935 her mail was reported as four thousand letters a week, and hers was the second-most popular girl’s name in the country.</p><p>What distinguished Shirley Temple from every other Hollywood star of the period—and everyone since—was how brilliantly she shone. Amid the deprivation and despair of the Great Depression, Shirley Temple radiated optimism and plucky good cheer that lifted the spirits of millions and shaped their collective character for generations to come. In <em>The Little Girl Who Fought The Great Depression: Shirley Temple And 1930s America</em>, distinguished cultural historian John F. Kasson shows how the most famous, adored, imitated, and commodified child in the world astonished movie goers, created a new international culture of celebrity, and revolutionized the role of children as consumers.</p><p> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:35:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 95345 at http://wamc.org "The Little Girl Who Fought The Great Depression: Shirley Temple And 1930s America"
