The Red Plaid "Good Ship Lollipop" Dress Worn by Shirley in 1934 Film "Bright Eyes"

Lot Number: 
27
Of intricate red/green plaid design, the cotton dress features intricate details of construction including faux pocket flaps at the bodice, hidden button placket centering full-length pleats, puff sleeves, white sleeve bands and pointed collar with plaid piping and trim, and black tie. Very good condition with some minor darkening of collar and cuffs. The dress was worn by Shirley in her famed "Good Ship Lollipop" song and dance for the 1934 film "Bright Eyes", and also appears in other scenes throughout the film. A studio photograph of Shirley wearing the dress is included. So popular was this song, Shirley Temple reported in her 1988 autobiography, Child Star, that "four hundred thousand copies of the sheet music were sold, topping the previous all-time records of crooner Bing Crosby and soprano Jeannette MacDonald."
