Shirley Temple

Still from “Bright Eyes”

Another person from the Sgt Pepper cover has left us with the passing of Shirley Temple yesterday, at 85. The above photo, a still from the “Bright Eyes” movie, was used on the cover. Actually, Shirley was used twice on the cover, because the doll is a vintage Shirley Temple doll.

Originally there were three instances of Shirley Temple on the cover, the third image of her was obscured by the Beatles’ wax figures. For a complete guide to the people on the Sgt Pepper’s cover, see this previous posting.
