Shirley Jane Temple's Journal

Friday, July 21, 2006


Hi everyone,

boy have I got more news. "Captain January" & "Poor Little Rich Girl" will be out during next season. I always like my co-stars, those 2 pictures included Buddy Ebsen, Jane Darwell, Jack Haley & Alice Faye. Mommy helps me focus real hard on my school work. Klammy is nice to be with in between shots, oh yeah and I can't forget Mary Lou (she's my stand in & good friend). Fox has photoshoots, radio & public appearances booked a bunch of the times. I enjoy the parades. Mommy and I looked over another film just yesterday, it's called "Dimples" but I wouldn't be on set until next year.

See you in the movies!

I hope Miss Ann doesn't mind this post since I got it from her idea.

These videos are scenes from a couple of my films. Enjoy!


Love, Shirley

I have been making lots of movies, when you get a chance my newest ones are: "The Littlest Rebel", "Curly Top" & "Our Little Girl". I made those in 1 year. My family & I have moved into a new house, I like it!

I'm getting tired so I better leave now. Thank you everybody for your support!!

Love, Shirley
p.s. tomorrow is my 6th birthday and Fox is throwing me a party so I'd like to invite you all. I will be there (online) from 12:00pm until 7:30pm.

I'm sorry for not updating, Fox wants me to stay with Mommy at my bungalow in between takes. I had a nice Valentine's day. Did you? My candy was gone right away...because I ate it. *giggles* Today I had to work awful hard but I don't mind. I will be filming another movie called "The Little Colonel", I met a new friend who is going to be dancing with me. His name is Bill Bojangles Robinson, 'cept he said I may call him Uncle Billy. *giggles* We agreed he gets to call me darlin'.

I need to go, my teacher Klammy is calling me for something important.
Love, Shirley

Wow just guess what Mr. Sheehan did, he gave me a house that's right on studio lot! I have my own swing out front with pretty flowers, a picket fence surrounding me & everything inside fits my size. I think it's called a bungalow. I was very surprised. He also got me a personal tutor, her name is Frances Klapt. She prefers Klammy though. Mr. Hathaway wanted me to cry for a scene yesterday in "Now and Forever", but I couldn't my tummy was full. So he told me we could try again this morning before lunch since that is when I can do it best. I finally did it! Everybody was happy.

Now it's time for another shot, bye.

Oh my goodness, I'm so happy to write again. I can't believe what is happening. Fox is giving me all sorts of roles. I love it! We are talking about this one picture which is all about flying. Amelia Earhart is going to be flying around the world pretty soon, I wish I can do that someday. Mommy doesn't like me staying up too late but the studio needed one more scene done so I was allowed. Now it's time for bed.

"Little Miss Marker" is a very good picture but funny too. I hope everybody will like it. Miss Dell is wonderful and so is Mr. Menjou but in the movie he doesn't like me at first. I better stop before I spill the beans. *giggles* Yesterday right after doing the breakfast scene Mr. Zukor came over to me and said "very nice work young lady". Mommy took me home for the day. She wasn't feeling to well and I don't know why. Well my lunch is ready.

Happy New Years Eve!

I am enjoying my time with Fox. Mommy says that I need to concentrate very hard because I'm a professional actress now. We have a secret code word and everything. Daddy is calling me for super.

My Daddy has been reading "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" to me, I love it! Some day I hope to be Dorothy. L. Frank Baum is a great writer. Mommy heard news Fox just called and Mr. Hall said I got the title role in "Little Miss Marker". I don't know how to read yet but I enjoy practicing my lines, this movie is a very funny picture. We start filming next month. I'm going to play with my brothers now. Bye.

Fox got me a role in "Stand up and Cheer". I'm excited! James Dunn will be playing my Daddy. And we get to dance with eachother. I can't wait!

2:18PM - My 1st Entry


my name is Shirley Jane Temple. I signed a contract with Fox the movie studios. Before that I was in the baby burlesk pictures and some frolics of youth. Mommy always helps me remember my lines, we have a new secret code word. I like playing with my two brothers. We play cops and robbers like on the radio. I always have my favorite sling shot with me, but I don't hurt anybody because I use paper balls. At night Mommy puts my hair up in 56 pin curls because that's how many it take for you to look your best and you should always look your best in pictures! Daddy and me listen to Amelia Earhart's travels. She is my hero, someday I hope to be a pilot just like her.

I better go now. I promise to keep you updated. Talk soon.
