"Love, Shirley Temple" exhibit opens at Frazier History Museum July 3-8

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Frazier History Museum hosts "Love, Shirley Temple", an exhibition of the child star's personal collection during a nationwide tour. 

Louisville is only one of seven sites to be selected for this one-of-a-kind exhibit July 3rd through the 8th.

Shirley Temple is one of Hollywood's most iconic and memorable sweethearts.

The display features nearly 200 items from the legendary actress's personal collection of movie costumes, dolls and memorabilia.

Louisville is the last stop on the seven city tour sponsored by Theriault's, the world's auction leader for important childhood objects.

"Love, Shirley Temple" spans the rise of "America's Little Darling" to stardom in 1930, the Depression years, and the end of her childhood in 1941.

From 1935 through 1938, Shirley Temple was the undisputed box office champion.

Shirley Temple's mother, Gertrude Temple, preserved the memorabilia from her daughter's more than 40 films produced in one decade. 

The items are on display for a limited time.
