Hollywood today had given Shirley Temple her biggest thrill as all the big stars turned out for her first premiere, "Wee Willie Winkie," staged 'mid blazing lights and fanfare at the Carthay Circle Theatre. But for some it was just another movie scene, for studio cameramen were on hand shooting film for use in another picture. Photo shows cameramen at the premiere, their lenses trained on Tyrone Power and Sonja Henie, arriving in evening clothes. Photo dated: June 26, 1937.
