Summary
When Franklin D. Roosevelt moved into the White House in 1933, he was determined to restore Americans' spirits and the American economy, but he needed resources besides social and economic measures to restore consumer confidence. Cue the entrance of Hollywood child star Shirley Temple, with her irresistible smile and engaging talents. In this fascinating book, cultural historian John Kasson shows how her 1930s films raised spirits, incidentally leading Americans to spend millions on movie tickets and memorabilia. Her partnership with co-star Bill "Bojangles" Robinson also gave hope to African Americans while significantly breaking a racial barrier. The Little Girl Who Fought the Great Depression presents an absorbing study of cultural history. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
