    Shirley Temple Signs Twice- 12 Years Apart. On July 7, 1936, an eight-year-old Shirley Temple signed Clifton Webb's Guest Book. Then, on Christmas day, 1948, she signed it again and wrote "It's really quite wonderful to be with you again after twelve and a half years. Shirley Temple - Dec. 25, 1948." On the verso is a 1933 signature and inscription from a famous New York gossip columnist, "The apartment- a tribute to Mabel's business ability- and Clifton's talent. Maury 'Cholly Knickerbocker' Paul." Paul was the original "Cholly" (the nom de plume was later used by Igor Cassini) and is known for coining such New York terms as "Longuyland," "Cafe Society," and "Old Guard." In very good condition with slight toning and wear to one edge. With COA from PSA/DNA.
