  • Rating: NR
A cultural historian, Kasson brings to light, the impact of Shirley Temple on a bleak era in American history. Telling us how, with her films focusing so much on emotional healing, was the much needed salve to heal a broken country. Becoming, in essence, a compliment to the New Deal policies of FDR.
