Shirley Temple


Shirley Temple Trivia


  • Trivia

    • She was originally going to take the role of Dorothy in MGM's "The Wizard of Oz", but negotiations fell through between the two studios, so Judy Garland took the role instead. In an effort to make up for the loss, Fox Studios bought the rights to "The Blue Bird" (which had a similar plot) for Shirley. When "The Blue Bird" was released, it did not make enough money to cover the huge cost of filming and was considered as a failure at the time. However, the movie is considered a classic today.
