I never was a fan of Shirley Temple, far from it. I do recall seeing most of her movies years ago. Back in the Sixties Channel 11, in St. Louis, used to have a Shirley Temple Theater on weekend afternoons. My sister Judy, for some reason, had to watch those Shirley Temple films.

So Evangeline Lilly might be playing a key role in Ant-Man: Good news all around! Lilly is still best known for her work on Lost, where she managed to make Kate into an appealing heroine despite the fact that the show never figured how to give her good flashbacks. (Or flashforwards.) (Or flash-sideways.) (Spoiler alert?) But she was a lot of fun playing Human Female in Real Steel, and by all accounts was good as Elf Female in 2 Hobbit 2 Smaug. She throws a mean right hook. She was in a movie that won Best Picture. It makes sense that »
