The surprise marriage of 5-year-old superstar Shirley Temple to Baby LeRoy, an up-and-coming child actor more than four months her junior, shocked a nation, and made headlines around the world.
Here they are, pictured imbibing on vanilla malteds minutes before LeRoy would announce he had a bad tum-tum, his mom then carrying him to the car.
They would make headlines again four weeks later as their tumultous marriage descended into a hell of acrimonious accusations and name calling, at one point Shirley Temple reportedly calling him a “baby.”
Though repeatedly asked for a comment, Baby Gruenwald steered clear of the car wreck.
