Shirley Temple watches as a gentleman we believe to be her dad, George Temple, affixes a license plate to the tiny  film star’s new bike. A caption-less publicity photo from Fox, in 1935, when Temple starred in a few “little” movies: The Little Colonel, Our Little Girl, The Littlest Rebel and, yes, Curly Top. If anyone can positively ID the man in the suit, let us know!

Sandra “Sandy” Wirth, baton-twirling beauty pageant contestant-turned-Hollywood-actress, goes hands free on her Schwinn Traveler in this odd handout photo from the prescient political satire A Face in the Crowd. Odd, because Wirth remains uncredited in the 1957 Elia Kazan-directed Warner Bros. release.

Shaun Cassidy, starring as Dave Stoller in the ABC- TV adaptation of the Oscar-nominated Breaking Away, rides his Huffy 12 Le Grande (!) around town. The show ran for one season, 1980-81.
