Things We Love: Bojangles & Shirley Temple

Back in the 1930s troubles hit and a lot of people in America became poor. In order to cheer them up, a little girl with curls and dimples started singing and dancing. She sang and danced with some of the biggest stars of the day. She may have been little, but kept up with them all, even a man named Bojangles, one of the greatest tap dancers of all time. Here they are together in The Littlest Rebel from 1935 when Shirley was only seven. Just try not to smile!
