Shirley Temple Black, Screen Darling, Dies at 85

http://nytimes.com/2014/02/12/arts/s...ies-at-85.html

Shirley Temple Black, who as a dimpled, precocious and determined little girl in the 1930s sang and tap-danced her way to a height of Hollywood stardom and worldwide fame that no other child has reached, died on Monday night at her home in Woodside, Calif. She was 85.

So sad. I treasure my vintage Shirley Temple doll (my mom only had two dolls growing up--this was one of them and the doll still has her original clothes, shoes, and hair). I loved watching her movies when I was a child because I had this doll (granted, these movies were in black and white and not on often).

We had a TV channel growing up in the '60s and '70s that showed movies from the'30s through the '50s, so I saw lots of her movies. They were always so much fun and upbeat. I'm glad she was able to make a successful transition to an adult career.

Truth be told, I didn't even know she was still alive.
Some celebrities quietly disappear into old age.

I had to look up why they kept says her name on the TV, I Googled the CNN report about one-minute before it was announced on the TV. Shrek was surprised, he hadn't heard about it all day.

RIP "Little Princess" "Little Miss Marker" "Heidi"

Me too SB. I just left a post about watching it again at the movie thread.

She made some good movies as a young woman.

"I'll Be Seeing You" with Spring Byington in 1944 is one that comes to mind.
