Growing up I would watch Shirley Temple movies every weekend–Curly Top, Heidi, Dimples, Stowaway, Poor Little Rich Girl, The Little Colonel, Bright Eyes, etc.–and she was a big hero of mine.
(This is of course despite the fact that she was a little white girl with curly blond hair and now that I watch her films there are plenty of cringeworthy moments.) Anyways, I made this poster for myself in high school to put on my bedroom wall to cheer me on 🙂 All I did was print out a black and white photo of Shirley and then cut out a word bubble saying “I really like what you’re doing! Keep up the good work.” Who are your childhood heroes?
If you never watched any Shirley Temple movies, here are some of my favorite clips:
