A midseason spirit-free episode of Back Bar about questionable morality and the golden age of Hollywood. 

1930s cinema was obsessed with purity and in young Shirley Temple, a blonde, curly-haired eight-year-old they found exactly the avatar of innocence they were looking for. Meanwhile soda fountains were on the rise, but like the movies of Hays code Hollywood there was more under the surface than just innocence and bubble good times. Special guests this week are Jim Kearns of Happiest Hour and Slowly Shirley and David Schwartz, Chief Curator of the Museum of the Moving Image.
