Default Was Shirley Temple allowed to see her own movies?

With any luck, that should be a claim about Shirley Temple from a translation of Erich Kšstnerís classic novel Das doppelte Lottchen (the inspiration for Disneyís The Parent Trap). I canít quote it, but if luck fails me, the gist is that Shirley wasnít allowed to see the movies she made when she was 7.

My question is twofold:

1) Is the claim true?
2) I donít speak German (Yes, I know that that makes me sound a little weird. Also, considering the claim is about a book thatís spawned movies Iíve gone on about), so can someone who does tell me if the claim is just an artifact of translation? (i.e. is her name substituted for someone elseís)
