Adored by adults and children alike, at four she already led at the Box Office – ahead of Gable and Cooper. Her films saved a movie studio from bankruptcy, and a President credited her with raising the morale of Depression-weary Americans. Her earliest movies gave a foretaste of her talents and soon would become the songs and dances that helped make those movies immortal. Here she is at her heart-stirring best in films like Little Miss Marker, Now and Forever, The Little Princess, and The Bachelor and The Bobby Soxer.
Also appearing: actors Caesar Romero, Alice Faye and Gloria Stuart, and former child actors Jane Withers, Darryl Hickman, Dick “Dickie” Moore, Marcia Mae Jones, and stand-in Marilyn Granas. Our host is an entertainment legend in his own right – Tommy Tune.
