A Shirley Temple majorette jacket from Poor Little Rich Girl
Twentieth Century-Fox, 1936. Child's satin drum majorette jacket with red sleeves and a white bodice with green trim, with three columns of brass buttons and three on each sleeve, and a matching white satin belt with a brass buckle, to be worn over the jacket. Bearing a black-lettered United Costumers, Inc. label inscribed in black ink, "Shirley Temple." Accompanied by a still showing Temple wearing this jacket.

Temple plays the titular character Barbara Barry, the daughter of wealthy widower Richard Barry. She gets separated from her nanny, pretends to be an orphan and is taken in by a pair of vaudeville singers and eventually performs on the radio. Temple wears this costume during the "Military Man" musical number with Jack Haley and Alice Faye. Eight years old at the time of the film's release, Temple was in the prime of her early career at Fox.
