Hello, Good to be here. My name is Sarah and I am 23 years old..
Like many before me, I discovered and fell in love with Shirley at a very young age. I have collected all of her movies that where done under Twentieth Century Fox , and have ever since held a dear affection for the child star. I recently bought and completed reading her autobiography. As a result, I have fallen in love with her all over again and along with it, a new respect for the child and the woman she became.
After completing her book, I went about a sort of "mad dash" around the internet trying to find footage of her. Interviews, fan videos, TV clips, news reels, etc. Alas, I have found very little.
I am usually more of an onlooker than I am an active participant in message boards, groups, etc. However, I felt compelled to change my tone in this particular instance. Recently I logged onto one of her Yahoo fan groups and wrote a plea to those fans who may have anything to please share. Luckly, one person so far was kind enough to reply to my message and came up with an idea of his own:
"Hi Sarah and All,
I was about to post this appeal. You know, till December 2008, there used to be lot of Shirley dance and songs on Youtube. These footage were uploaded by our group member and my friend Scott, Canada. He painstakingly collected best Shirley numbers and uploaded on Youtube for all of us. Now his profile is not there, and all the videos posted by him are missing.
I was about to appeal to all Shirley fans to upload clips, footage, songs, videos, dance, ST doll collection, slides etc whatever they have on Youtube. Or if the contributor isn't familiar with Youtube, please email me so that I make a common account on Youtube in Shirley Fan Club's name and upload there.
Sarah, if you help with this "project", I will be thankful to you."
So this is why I am writing to all of you now. If anyone has anything at all they would like to share with other Shirley Temple fans please uploa them yourself if you hve an account or you can contact me threw PM on here or you can email me at: SSrb1098@yahoo.com
