"Shirley Temple In "Wee Willie Winkie" A 20th Century Fox Production Authorized Edition No 1769". This vintage book was published by the Saalfield Publishing company in 1937 and tells the story of little girl headed to India to her grandfather. Movie stills in black and white are sprinkled throughout this delightful movie memorabilia soft-cover book. This movie was directed by John Ford, Produced by Darryl Zanuck and was based on a story by Rudyard Kipling. The cast included Shirley Temple, Victor McLaglen, June Lang, Michael Whalen, C. Aubrey Smith, Cesar Romero and Douglas Scott.
It is in good vintage condition. The cover features a picture of Shirley Temple on a blue background with a red and green title. The cover has some cracking and spine wear as well as bumping at scuffing around the corners. The interior pages are clean and unmarked with only a previous owner's name written in pencil on the inside front cover. There is mild yellowing of the pages and a page or two where the ink was not printed as heavily (although this is a manufacturing defect and not a condition issue.) The staples are intact and tight.
A fun piece of movie history.
