Shirley Temple remains the most famous child star of all time, but even this designation fails to reflect the magnitude of her popularity during the era in which she worked. While it is true that she was not the first child actor to reach Hollywood fame, she was the first - and to this day, perhaps the only - star who rose to the very pinnacle of the Hollywood elite before she even turned 10 years old. For this reason, it is no exaggeration to view Shirley as the progenitor for all of the child actors that succeeded her. Moreover, her cultural importance constitutes an even more important barometer through which to measure her overall significance. Not only was Shirley a film star, but she had a monumental impact on a generation of children who grew up during the Great Depression, with her plucky optimism emotionally uplifting an American public struggling both financially and emotionally. She was not only a young actress but also a brand name, someone who offered fathers and mothers hope for their children to achieve the same success as the famous child star. Yet, for all of Shirley Temple’s fame, it is no doubt surprising to many that her actual films received scant critical acclaim. Her films were never mentioned on critical “best of” lists, nor did they regularly appear on the list of nominees for the Academy Awards.

In many ways, Judy Garland’s rise to fame seems almost predestined. Not only was she a national sensation at a young age, but her parents and sisters were all vaudeville entertainers. On top of that, Garland’s parents owned and operated a movie theater, making it all the easier to draw the conclusion that singing and acting were simply professions which she was born into by virtue of her pedigree. Judy’s early childhood quickly demonstrated that she had a gifted voice that developed well beyond its years and seemingly did not require any formal training in order to achieve success; her first performance before a public audience came when she was still a toddler, and she would continue to act up until her death, never pausing for more than a few months at a time. That Garland was able to secure starring roles almost immediately after signing a contract with MGM in 1935 only corroborates the belief that Garland was practically born with the ability to succeed in show business and the motion picture industry.

Of course, Garland might be known today based more on her demise than anything else, and there’s no denying that one of the most fascinating (and tragic) aspects of her life story is the manner in which her downward spiral occurred with the same rapid progression as her meteoric ascent. Garland died in 1969 at the age of 47, but she had lost control over her life years earlier and was actually fortunate to live as long as she did.

Alongside Shirley Temple and Judy Garland, with whom he acted in a series of films, Mickey Rooney was one of America’s most beloved child stars during the 1930s. Rooney had already made his mark in A Family Affair (1937), but he was the face of the incredibly successful Andy Hardy series, which produced several box office hits and featured Rooney in 13 movies, several alongside Judy Garland, who shot to fame as a teen in The Wizard of Oz.

At the same time, the fact that the peak of his success came when he was so young has helped obscure the fact that he has acted in 10 different decades. Rooney is one of the only actors still alive who worked in the silent film era, yet he recently appeared in 2012’s Last Will and Embezzlement. In the process, Rooney has been awarded a Juvenile Academy Award, an Honorary Academy Award, two Golden Globes and an Emmy Award.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not a very in-depth study 30. April 2014
Von Weebiscuit - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I don't know what I expected out of this book as I'm fairly new to the Charles River Editors' editions. I have only read one other, and like this book, that was also what I termed as more of an "article" than a book. Realizing that three people, Shirley Temple, Judy Garland, and Mickey Rooney, were the subjects of this book, I should have realized that none of the "biographies" would have been in depth. It took me under three hours to read the entire thing.

Each of the sections on the three stars seemed to be far more concerned with their filmography than with their actual lives. I was hoping to learn a lot more about them as children. I think perhaps the section on Shirley Temple's childhood was covered a bit better than the other two, as concerns her studio experiences. In fact, Mickey Rooney's early childhood was covered in five paragraphs at the beginning of his section, and that was it!

I also was rather surprised to find some grammatical errors in a book published by a company that calls itself, "Charles River Editors." Editors? Really? In the Judy Garland section a glaring grammatical error read, "Not only was he significantly older than her......" Her????? Obviously, the word should be "she!"

And then there was, "That Judy was subjected to an unreasonable degree of pressure from her mother cannot be doubted. Her mother pushed her to an unreasonable degree......" Rather redundant.

In the section on Mickey Rooney: "He would go onto reprise his role the following year...." It should read "He would go on to reprise his role the following year...." "Onto" and "on to" have two different meanings.

And then, "Rooney told his own story on camera to draw attention to how he had been affected personal, and the film got mixed reviews." "Personal" should be the adverb "personally."

Small errors, of course, but I feel that editing was perhaps not a big consideration for Charles River "Editors."

I would like to add that the number of stars I gave this book was based solely on the content and I did not take the editing into consideration when rating it.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must-Read Book About the Great Child Stars of the 1930s - Updated in 2014 After Rooney & Temple Died 18. April 2014

This is a good book. I especially enjoyed reading what happened to Shirley Temple after her acting ended.

Ironic that Micker Rooney and Shirley Temple were child stars of the 1930s and both died in 2014. I bet they're both entertaining folks in heaven right now.

This 140 pages makes for compelling reading. I highly recommend buying Shirley Temple, Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney.

I enjoyed this book because of the way it was written. They stuck to facts and went out to destroy the people they wrote about. I would say it was well written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen American Legends: The Life of Shirley Temple, Judy Garland, and Mickey Rooney details their lives and careers in vivid detail 24. März 2014
Von Christopher J. Cowen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
American Legends: The Life of Shirley Temple, Judy Garland, and Mickey Rooney is a good book that I found pretty comprehensive and showed you the world that these child actors lived in when they were young. I of course knew of shirley Temple being a child star but I was unaware of Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney being childhood stars as well. These three individuals were under alot of pressure when they were kids. During their time movie studios ruled over their talent with an iron fist. In the case of Judy Garland they may have contributed to her death. This book included pictures and even quotes about their lives and careers. The book did a good job at showing how important these individuals were to American culture. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

Thank you for reading my review.
