Shirley Temple Black Autograph on card, signed with black pen " Shirley Temple Black, 1990 ".
At the left is a small photo of the young Shirley with a basket.
The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
In 1933, Shirley starred in an imitation Our Gang series called the Baby Burlesks, performing astonishingly accurate impressions of Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich. After a handful of minor roles she created a sensation by stopping the show with her rendition of "Baby Take a Bow " in Fox's Stand Up and Cheer. She was promptly promoted to her own starring features, literally saving Fox (and its successor 20th Century Fox) from receivership, and earned a special Oscar in 1934 "in grateful recognition to her outstanding contribution to screen entertainment."
Retiring on her trust fund in 1950, she wed a second time to business executive Charles Black, a marriage that would endure for several decades and produce a number of children.
Her signatures as Temple Black are scarcer.
Size: 5.5 x 3.5 in. Good condition.
