At the Codfish Ball from Captain January
I awoke this morning to the news that our dear Shirley Temple is gone.
Back when I was a kid, Channel 48 had 'Shirley Temple Theatre' on Saturday afternoons, and my little friends and I would never miss it. (I remember vividly one my friends DID miss it one Saturday, and burst into tears over this great disappointment.)
Captain January was my favorite, and all these years later it's still entertaining. Shirley is the definition of adorable, and you get to see a charmingly boyish Buddy Edsen thirty years before he became the grizzled Jed Clampett.
