The Scarlett Olive: Child Stars

The Scarlett Olive: Child Stars

How is Shirley Temple relevant to our lives today?  Well, a remix of one her songs, “Early Bird,” was used in a Target commercial recently.

This week’s show on The Scarlett Olive was all about child stars of the Gold Era of Hollywood.  We highlighted child stars who became successful adult stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Mickey Rooney, and Judy Garland.  We also talked about child stars who either retired young or whose careers didn’t transition such as Freddie Bartholomew and Virginia Weidler.

Tune in next Sunday at 7pm as we dedicate the show to the wonderful Judy Garland!

Have a swell week,

Katie and Hilary
