    Marilyn Monroe capitalized on the Shirley Temple look.

    She had an important life after her film career too. She has grandkids and I'm sure everyone is crushed.

    She had a wonderful full life and gave back by taking on a distinguished role in the political arena. She goes to prove that just because you are a film star and make a great deal of money you don't have to go off the rails as so many before have done and are no longer here.

    The last links to classic Hollywood are passing away. Little Shirley Temple was one of the acting greats I believe. It sounds like Mrs Temple Black was a wonderful, much loved adult too.

    Rest in peace, little Miss Miracle.

    Really interesting obituary at the link too. Stoopid Santa asked for her autograph when she went to see him at 6 years old and disillusioned her.

    Unhappy

    I'm sure that I've seen most of Shirley Temple's films, but my favorites include "Heidi", "A Little Princess", and "Kathleen".

    Thank you, Shirley Temple, for bringing hope and joy to millions in times of great turmoil. Rest in peace

    A little girl that made millions smile during the Great Depression. A very together woman who set a wonderful example of what a celebrity can accomplish with the gifts they were given.

    We were at opposite sides of the political arena, but I always admired Shirley Temple Black.

    Rest In Peace and thanks for the memories. Her movies were on TV all the time when I was a kid and I just loved them.

    Shirley Temple Dies at 85
    By Associated Press
    02/11/2014 at 06:15 AM EST


    Snipped:

    Temple's mother, Gertrude, worked to keep her daughter from being spoiled by fame and was a constant presence during filming. Her daughter said years later that her mother had been furious when a director once sent her off on an errand and then got the child to cry for a scene by frightening her. "She never again left me alone on a set," she said.

    Temple became a nationwide sensation. Mothers dressed their little girls like her, and a line of dolls was launched that are now highly sought-after collectables. Her immense popularity prompted President Franklin D. Roosevelt to say that "as long as our country has Shirley Temple, we will be all right."

    Shirley Temple Was Also a Cancer-Fighting Activist

    Snipped:

    Shirley Temple was known around the world for having been a child star, but the actress also carved out another influential role for herself: outspoken cancer activist.

    Shirley Temple's Charm Was a Combination of Spontaneity and Timing
    By Stephen M. Silverman
    02/11/2014 at 12:00 PM EST


    Snipped:

    Her fans even included the very formal first lady of the land. Invited to Eleanor Roosevelt's Hyde Park, N.Y., home in 1935, little Shirley practiced some high jinks learned for the movie The Littlest Rebel – and hit Mrs. Roosevelt in the backside with her slingshot.

    "I'm still a good shot," Temple said with a laugh years later.


    You will truly be missed, Shirley!

    I so loved watching her movies when I was little. They were played on tv every Saturday back in the 60s. I can still hear her singing, The Good Ship Lollipop!
