32 page, photo-illustrated softcover fictionalization of the John Ford-directed 20th Century-Fox film, WEE WILLIE WINKIE, starring Shirley Temple, Victor McGlaglen and June Lang. 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 1937 and features dozens of priceless black and white photos from the film. Saalfield #1769.
CONDITION: VERY FINE condition with only light cover edge wear with much of the original cover gloss still retained. No tears or creases. Slighty off-white interior pages. Remarkable condition for a 70+ year old softcover book.
