        I don't care about this b***h in the slightest, but morons always say shit like this because it's the most useless statement possible while virtue signalling that they are in the normal group.
        Your entire life, you will not once contribute anything of substance to prevent abuse or help out abuse victims. If you want to virtue signal at least volunteer one time somewhere helping anyone... ever.
        Once!
        Making sandwiches at a shelter counts.

          Shirley was not abused. In fact there’s a story about her laughing in some israeli producers face when he tried putting the moves on her.

            Based Shirley. If only more kids would destroy the egos of those degenerate fricks.

            Shirley Temple was legitimately cute and funny. And precocious kids used to be novel performers instead of every kid being a little shit

            Kids were always shit, but they weren't told to act over the top back then.

    She was based, they pedo fricks did bad shit to her, but she turned it around on them and pretty much had their arms in a twist ever after

    I mean sad what happened to her, but if you have to get pedo'd, and of course you do with Hollywood, then you may as well get their balls in a vice for their evil perversions

    They could look at pre pubescent girls and not think immediately of sex back then. Probably because they didn't grow up watching perverted Japanese cartoons.

    Graham Green famously wrote a review of a Shirley Temple movie were he said the craze was basically sexual. He called her a "hotsy totsy"

    "The owners of a child star are like leaseholders — their property diminishes in value every year. Time’s chariot is at their backs: before them acres of anonymity. What is Jackie Coogan now but a matrimonial squabble? Miss Shirley Temple’s case, though, has peculiar interest: infancy with her is a disguise, her appeal is more secret and more adult. Already two years ago she was a fancy little piece — real childhood, I think, went out after The Littlest Rebel). In Captain January she wore trousers with the mature suggestiveness of a [Marlene] Dietrich: her neat and well-developed rump twisted in the tap-dance: her eyes had a sidelong searching coquetry. Now in Wee Willie Winkie, wearing short kilts, she is a complete totsy. Watch her swaggering stride across the Indian barrack-square: hear the gasp of excited expectation from her antique audience when the sergeant’s palm is raised: watch the way she measures a man with agile studio eyes, with dimpled depravity. Adult emotions of love and grief glissade across the mask of childhood, a childhood skin-deep.

    It is clever but it cannot last. Her admirers — middle aged men and clergymen — respond to her dubious coquetry, to the sight of her well-shaped and desirable little body, packed with enormous vitality, only because the safety curtain of story and dialogue drops between their intelligence and their desire. “Why are you making my Mummy cry?” — what could be purer than that? And the scene when dressed in a white nightdress she begs grandpa to take Mummy to a dance — what could be more virginal? On those lines in her new picture, made by John Ford, who directed The Informer, is horrifyingly competent. It isn’t hard to stay to the last prattle and the last sob. The story — about an Afghan robber converted by Wee Willie Winkie to the British Raj — is a long way after Kipling. But we needn’t be sour about that. Both stories are awful, but on the whole Hollywood’s is the better."

      Shirley Temple reminds me of those girls in child pageants who have very domineering moms who ware pushing them to be cute and sexy.

      There are stories about Temples mom. Not that she was doing anything suggestive; but that she enjoyed too much the class system which existed at MGM, even for child actors. For example, Jane Withers tells a story (somewhere in the link below I forget where) about how no one below a certain star level was allowed to talk to Shirley, and they had to come in through different doors, etc.

      That is seriously disturbing. So much that I assume the author has won a lot of awards from left-leaning organizations

      Her fans always seem a little.......too enthusiastic about her

      I think there's a strong fan base in the gay community, like there is for Judy Garland

      The films were incredibly cheap to make, and made a ton of money. They learned that back in the 1920's with the "baby Peggy" serials, which put a kid under 2 into >150 short films in 2 years

          The fact producers and studio executives would blackmail actresses (including underage ones) into having sex with them under the threat of being blacklisted by the industry used to be an open secret. All the outrage over Harvey Weinstein was fake; just broads noticing a changing public opinion on 'dubious consent' and then trying to bandwagon.
          50 years ago everybody, even normal people on the street, knew about it. Nobody was under the pretense anyone in Hollywood got there on merit. In fact, movies and TV used to make jokes about ignorant hicks from "Nebraska" moving out to tinseltown thinking they could sing and dance themselves to fame and fortune.

            They used to blame the women for using sex to get roles. That's what changed with Weinstein.

              It went both ways, which is why nobody cared. They knew men would offer roles in exchange for sex, and they knew women would accept the deal because they were untalented hacks who otherwise had no business in showbusiness. What changed is the idea that the girls are somehow innocent little angels with no choice.
