In 1935, the Hannefords co-starred with Shirley Temple for OUR LITTLE GIRL, out of the Fox Film Corporation. Poodles received the only family credit as "The Circus Performer". I have the 8 x 10 photo Shirley autographed for them. The above photo is too recent for her film, but that light @ L has barn doors, suggesting another of the Hollywood outings for the Hannefords.

This is not considered Shirley's best film. Her parents, Joel McCrea and Rosemary Ames, are splitting up, Shirley's heartsick, they take her to the circus, all go home reunited, and as no other child star could, Shirley flashes her dimples for the big finish.

The light at extreme left

is a followspot Roger but

there seems to be another

light hung behind it which

may give the illusion of

the barn door you mention

I have a fair numer of

2 way & a few 4 way that

you are welcome to

Barn Doors & Snoots or High Hats

get mounted on the color frame

slots on many single intruments

They only cut or reduce hilation

They don't shape the beams

The scaffolding with followspots

& many additional lighting units

do indeed suggest filming which

also explains the empty seats

I might take you up on those lights. There are nettlesome dark spots in my apartment.
