Shirley as Barbara Barry, a little girl who gets lost one day and is picked up by entertainers who make her part of their comedy act, in POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL (1936). This musical comedy also featured Alice Faye, Gloria Stuart and Jane Darwell

A poster from STOWAWAY (1936) with Alice Faye, Robert Young, Eugene Pallette and Leon Ames.

A poster from the film from which she derived her most popular nickname, DIMPLES (1936) with Frank Morgan.  Although he doesn't appear in the film, Bill Bojangles Robinson provided the choreography for the musical numbers. 

In CAPTAIN JANUARY (1936), Shirley plays Star, an orphan rescued from the sea and raised by an old lighthouse attendant (Guy Kibbee).  Also featuring Slim Summerville and Jane Darwell (one of Shirley's most frequent co-stars during her Fox years -- appearing in six of her films), the highlight of this nautically-themed musical is Shirley's dance with a lanky sailor named Paul (Buddy Ebsen) to "The Codfish Ball."

Completely unrelated to Kate Douglas Wiggin's famous story of the same name, in REBECCA OF SUNNYBROOK FARM (1938), Randolph Scott tries to make Shirley a radio star.
