Rest in Peace, Sybil Jason  
Sybil Jason recently (August 23) passed away at age 83.

Sybil, born five months before Shirley in 1927, was a child star with Warner Brothers Studio in the 1930's. Like Shirley, Sybil was a talented singer, dancer, and actress, and Warner Brothers hoped that she would bring their studio the box-office dollars that Shirley brought Twentieth Century-Fox. After her contract with Warner expired, Sybil costarred in two films with Shirley, The Little Princess and The Blue Bird. The two girls remained friends and spoke very kindly of each other in their autobiographies.

Sybil is the third of Shirley's contemporaries to pass away this year, after Elizabeth Taylor in March, and Edith Fellows in June.

Rest in peace, Ms. Jason.

So very sad that she passed. I really enjoyed her in the two movies you listed.

Thank you for posting.
