Shirley Temple Black was glum about a video being released in honor of her birthday Thursday.
It's the "Shirley Temple - Sing and Dance Along" video, touted by 20th Century Fox as a celebration of the "70th birthday of America's favorite sweetheart."Black, who won the world's heart by age 5 with her singing and dancing in such films as "Curly Top" and "Poor Little Rich Girl," said she wasn't getting "a dime" from the video and brushed off questions about her birthday plans. "There's nothing special," she said Wednesday.
A Fox Home Entertainment spokesman said the company did not need Black's permission for the video. It includes some of her best work, including the "I Love to Dance in the Rain" number with Bill "Bojangles" Robinson.
