  • Two of Shirley Temple's early film roles display the charm that would make her a box office sensation: LITTLE MISS MARKER and NOW AND FOREVER.

    The film that made Shirley Temple a star, LITTLE MISS MARKER was the first filmed version of a tale by Damon Runyan (GUYS AND DOLLS). Temple plays Marthy, who is left behind by her father as collateral for a gambling debt. She swiftly charms the hardened bookies and crooks (including classic Hollywood character actor Adolphe Menjou) who have taken her in with her precocious singing and dancing and childish cleverness. After this film Temple would go on to be one of the box office's biggest draws for the next few years.

    Hollywood craftsman Henry Hathaway directs an all-star cast in the family drama NOW AND FOREVER. Jerry (Gary Cooper) and Toni (Carole Lombard) are a husband and wife living off the money he makes as a jewel thief. But their carefree lifestyle comes to a halt when Jerry is forced to re-take custody of his daughter Penny (Shirley Temple), whom he had deposited with relatives. Toni sees the little girl as a chance to force Jerry to give up his criminal ways, but he merely sees her as a nuisance...at first, anyway. With Cooper playing against type, the perfect comic timing of Lombard, and the considerable charm of Temple, NOW AND FOREVER is classical Hollywood at its most entertaining.
