24 page, photo-illustrated softcover fictionalization of the 20th Century-Fox film, SUSANNAH OF THE MOUNTIES, starring Shirley Temple, Randolph Scott and Margaret Lockwood. With her bouncy curls and bight persona, the plucky child star was an endearing, pop culture phenomenon — which she still remains today –and one of the top box-office draws of the 1930s. There were countless news articles, magazines stories and newsreels covering her every move as wells as dolls, books and merchandise items — ranging from plates to calendars — bearing her image. This 9 /58″ x 10″ book was published in 1939 and features a gorgeou full color portrait of Shirley on the front and back covers, plus dozens of priceless black and white photos from the film. Saalfield #1705.
