Shirley Temple, America's sweetheart and Hollywood's biggest box-office star from 1935 to 1938, worked together with sound mixer Shelby Chapman on four of her films. Here is a note Shirley wrote to Chapman when he was in hospital. Dated probably around 1935 when Shirley was at the height of her popularity, it reads:

dear Mr. Chapman
I am sorry that you got hurt.
I hope you will be well for my next picture,
