PostSubject: Shirley Temple has died   Tue Feb 11, 2014 7:05 am

Former child star Shirley Temple passed away Monday at age 85. She first started acting during the 1930s, and appeared in films such as Baby Take A Bow, Bright Eyes, Curly Top, Heidi, and The Little Princess. Temple retired from film acting at a younger age but became involved in politics later in life, and also enjoyed being a mother and grandmother.

She was a cutie!


With the country still reeling from the Great Depression, President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed, “As long as our country has Shirley Temple, we will be all right.” Her influence extended to lands far away: Looking to curry favor with America, foreign dignitaries sent her such gifts as a miniature, drivable Rolls-Royce (from the Aga Khan in the Middle East) and a kid’s-size jade elephant (from China).

My mom loves Shirley Temple, and I've seen a lot of her films. We still own several. I liked the films where she said "Animal Crackers in My Soup" and "Good Ship Lollipop"

So many memories of her while growing up.  She was a great little child star and grew up to be a beautiful woman with a mission....she will be missed.  

I have SO many Shirley Temple dolls in my aunt's doll collection.....wow, just wow....

Big fan right here.  She is gone but lives forever in the heart of her family, friends and fans  loveheart loveheart 



Here are some 5 facts about her.  

1.  She helped save Fox from bankruptcy.



In 1934, Fox Films merged with Twentieth Century Pictures to become Twentieth Century-Fox. Its then studio head, Darryl F. Zanuck (pictured above), harnessed the fledgling talent that was three-year-old Temple and focused his resources upon cultivating her star status. Temple elevated the studio from near-bankruptcy—it was tens of millions of dollars in debt—to one of the most successful and profitable studios in Hollywood.

2. She stopped acting at 22.



Disheartening studio flops, a messy divorce, and a diminishing audience interest in the post-innocent Temple culminated in a decision to retire from acting at age twenty-two.

3. She was a spokeswoman for breast cancer awareness.



After being diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing a mastectomy in 1972, Temple held a news conference from her hospital room to raise awareness and encourage women not to “sit home and be afraid” after discovering a breast lump. At the time, mastectomies were secret operations, and Temple helped bring breast cancer awareness to the forefront of the nation’s priorities in public health discussion.

4. She was a politician.



A staunch opponent of the Vietnam War, Temple was a liberal Republican who once ran, albeit unsuccessfully, for Congress. After, however, she was appointed Representative to the 24th United Nations General Assembly by President Richard M. Nixon and the United States Ambassador to Ghana. Later, she also served as the U.S. Ambassador to Czechoslovakia.

5. At age six, she was the first recipient of a Juvenile Academy Award.



She will be greatly missed...   Blue

From what movie is that one from? She was such a cutie as a child. I think almost all parents wanted their little girls to be like Shirley back in those days

I forgot to mention that she's also been on my list of "People to Draw" ever since I discovered that I could draw. . . SO. . . Carol, if you happen to have any really clear shots of her, I'd appreciate seeing them. Smile I'm trying to find a picture that I'd like to draw of her.

I actually have a few 8x10 black and white photos that my Aunt had. Sadly, my scanner won't work with this computer.....You can go to eBay and put, "Shirley Temple black and white glossies" in the search and find some nice ones there.....  Thumbsup

I never looked at this!

LISA! I hope you will do a drawing of her. I did one recently and put it on facebook. There are SO many good photos!

Excited to get it in the mail! Once I do, I'll see if I can convert it to DVD... because sadly, vhs image doesn't look very well on HDTVs :(  But!... I have a place nearby that converts to DVD Thumbsup
