50's/60's walking doll (possibly Shirley Temple)

And here's another old doll I'm getting restored asap, she walks when you move her head, and is supposed to be a Shirly Temple Doll, though I'm sceptical, as she doesn't have any dimples, which all Shirley Temple Dolls do. With a new curly wig and a few other repairs she'll be great, some idiots filled her head with plaster as a way of repairing the walking mechanism (two metal rods run from the legs up the hollow composition body and have to be attached in the head so the legs move when the heads turns) but there has to be a better way to do it than that.
