Santa Monica History Museum to Exhibit Extensive Shirley Temple Collection

The Santa Monica History Museum is excited to announce it will display an extensive Shirley Temple exhibition from Thursday, April 6th, until Saturday, May 13th, at the Santa Monica History Museum at 1350 7th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401.

Shirley Temple: The Depression’s Box Office Doll, the Museum’s third exhibit to honor the Santa Monica native, will be the first to bring together a stunning collection of Ideal dolls released during Temple’s childhood career.

Dolls on display include those owned by Shirley as well as those sold in her image during the 1930s, when earnings from licensed merchandise matched that of her income as an actress. The exhibit will also feature original movie costumes and posters, personal clothing, photos, correspondence, memorabilia, and much more!

Among the treasures on display will be iconic costumes, including her red polka-dot dress from the 1934 film “Stand Up and Cheer!” and the plaid dress Temple wore while performing “On the Good Ship Lollipop.” Artifacts on display also include Shirley’s personal correspondence with President and First Lady Roosevelt, photos of her as a child, and original birth certificate from Santa Monica Hospital.

Shirley Temple was born in Santa Monica on April 23, 1928. Her abundant talents as a singer, dancer, and actress

made her a quick success in Hollywood. Once named “Little Miss Miracle” by President Franklin D. Roosevelt for

her ability to bring joy to the lives of millions, her films have been said to uplift the spirits of a nation in the midst of the Great Depression. Shirley Temple: The Depression’s Box Office Doll will be an exquisite tribute to her career and legacy during the 1930s.
