Asked in Shirley Temple
A little girl who see a women in white in her yard and meets a sad women in old house around Christmas time?
Sounds like some Shirley Temple (Cantinfloss!) stuff from the late thirties. Temple never acted in adult roles. When she reached maturity she was out of acting. It could also be a (Hallmark Hall of Fame) production of some sort with a Yuletide tone, they went for the heavily dramatic stuff. I really cannot identify the story but from the description it sounds like Shirley Temple. It could not be Judy Garland, apart from(Oz) she did not generally act in juvenile roles. It is certainly not Alice in Wonderland, Babes in Toyland or similar, sounds like some ghost-occult thing.
