While a lot of Farkers don't know about her and her movies, I enjoyed watching them as a kid on TV. Yeap, she was a little bit before my time and yours. But she was a really good child star who grew up to be a decent adult.

If you got kids, throw a couple of her movies on for them. Include some Our Gang and Laurel and Hardy too.

Her autobiography was a pretty entertaining read. She grew up being remarkably unscathed by all of the fame, and seems to have had no resentment that her parents blew all of her money before she reached adulthood.

CSB:

My grandparents lived all over the world during the 70s, as my grandfather worked for the state department. His work in 1972 took them to Ghana about the time Shirley Temple arrived as ambassador. My grandmother grew up watching her and adoring her, so you can imagine how elated she was to meet her idol.

Grandma said her and Ms. Temple became friends there, sneaking off to go smoke in some quiet spot. Grandma said no one was supposed to know that Shirley Temple smoked, so they shared that time together I suppose, giggling over it.

The scary part there is that was filmed 40 years ago poking fun at another child actress's act which took place 40 years before that.

Kids are into the retro '80s which was 30 years ago but when we were there retro was the '50s, 30 years before.

I bet it safe to say there were many others.  This was back in the day when things like that were kept quiet and especially with regards to Shirley Temple.  No way the people that supervised her career were going to let anything taint her image.  I'll bet there were even people close to her who did weird shiat.  Just look at Hollywood today and apply same to that time period.

When they got to Shirley the whole thing came to a stop as the crowd went roaring for her like she was the only one to ever contribute anything to Hollywood. I knew she was the child star and was old enough to see her likeness parodied/homaged in a ton of other media but wow I was surprised how much of an impact she had on that generation.

The b&w era of movies seems to be ancient history, it's surprising just how relatively recent it was.  I guess that it truly is over now, there may be a few people still alive who were in some films back then but I doubt that any were/had a bigger name than Shirley Temple.  RIP

Regarding the Shirley Temple movie "Wee Willie Winkie" [good lord], Novelist Graham Greene wrote, "Her admirers - middle-aged men and clergymen - respond to her dubious coquetry, to the sight of her well-shaped and desirable little body, packed with enormous vitality, only because the safety curtain of story and dialogue drops between their intelligence and their desire."

He wrote that and then fled England to avoid a criminal libel prosecution. I'm unsure who was libeled. Middle aged men and the clergy? It's a well-established principle that you can't libel groups. So, it must have been Temple who was libeled by being described as having "dubious coquetry".

So, listen up, undesirable, mound-shaped, inert Farkers, be careful with your words out there.

SirEattonHogg: Gungfu:
Interestingly enough, Shirley Temple was the first white female to be shown dancing with an African American on screen. Also,  sometimes referred to as the first interracial couple of Hollywood.


I doubt that very much


Here's a link, doubter.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/constance-valis-hill/shirley-temple-bi ll -robinson_b_1554517.html

Or rather first "interracial couple" in film history, cinema or on film.

Obviously, they weren't a couple in a real sense.



FTFA:"Theirs was the perfect interracial love match. For surely nothing would come of it," writes Donald Bogle.

One person quoted, and without addition of the word 'couple'. The headline to the article is the only thing that mentions them as an 'interracial couple'.
Not quite the overwhelming idea that they were 'sometimes referred to as the first interracial couple of Hollywood.'

I stand by my doubt very much.

I have a hard time remembering which old celebrities are still alive. Mostly because I have to remember that lots of people famous in the 50s-60s would have only been 20 then. But Shirley Temple used to be my go-to "do you know who's surprisingly still alive?" It sounded shocking until you remembered SHE WAS A LITTLE GIRL in the 30s when she was most famous.

We had more or less the same situation. We had 3 channels, 2 in English and one in French, and Sunday you had a choice of "give us your money" church tv, a weird french show or a Shirley Temple movie.

Definitely worth watching and I recommend people with kids show those movies to them. :)

No child porn.  The man was convicted of molestation.  But yeah, she was at least one pedophile's dream.

Interestingly enough, Shirley Temple was the first white female to be shown dancing with an African American on screen. Also,  sometimes referred to as the first interracial couple of Hollywood.


I doubt that very much


Here's a link, doubter.

Or rather first "interracial couple" in film history, cinema or on film.

Obviously, they weren't a couple in a real sense.


FTFA:"Theirs was the perfect interracial love match. For surely nothing would come of it," writes Donald Bogle.

One person quoted, and without addition of the word 'couple'. The headline to the article is the only thing that mentions them as an 'interracial couple'.
Not quite the overwhelming idea that they were 'sometimes referred to as the first interracial couple of Hollywood.'

I stand by my doubt very much.


Laurel and Hrdy were a couple but I also doubt they had sex together. Couple has multiple meanings. Skaters, tennis, et al, also use the term "couple".

Sheesh. Anal retent much?

Why do you doubt that? Seems Laurel was the biatch in that relationship anyways.

wiwille: B.L.Z. Bub: steamingpile: Fano: steamingpile: almandot: I just remember one of the Academy Awards where they had as many former winners on stage as they could get and were going through them one by one. When they got to Shirley the whole thing came to a stop as the crowd went roaring for her like she was the only one to ever contribute anything to Hollywood. I knew she was the child star and was old enough to see her likeness parodied/homaged in a ton of other media but wow I was surprised how much of an impact she had on that generation.

R.I.P., I'll have a Roy Rodgers.

She was a loved icon for almost everyone in that generation and saved a studio from failure.

Hell we made it to a second mobile page before someone was hateful to her as an ambassador appointed by a hated president. For fark that is nothing short of amazing since I expected it to be top comment.

The Paul Harvey death thread was full of spite and hate for his politics, IIRC. He had always seemed like a harmless old man telling folksy stories, but by gawd our political myrmidons didn't mind stomping on him.

Yeah and that is what I expected, Nixon appointed her!!! Republican!!!! Get her!!!!!!

They have done a good job of demonizing republicans and some is deserved but to think all are plotting to destroy/take over the world is just moronic. Just like I realize not everyone on the left wants to take all my money.

You know who else Nixon appointed as an ambassador?

I thought he appointed him as some kind of anti-drug ambassador (not a formal paid position, of course, but I thought it was one of those symbolic honorings). Apparently not, though. He did ask Nixon for a Bureau of Narcotics badge, but I'm unclear whether he was given one.

If you got kids, throw a couple of her movies on for them. Include some Our Gang and Laurel and Hardy too.

RIP "Good Ship Lollypop" Lady.

Temple made her money early and left the limelight while she still had her soul intact.

She served as an ambassador and then slid back out of the spotlight.

She lived her life comfortably long after most people thought she was dead. I can respect that.

She didn't speak out on politics or social issues. She didn't use stupid gimmicks to keep her name in the headlines. Lessons that Sting, Shia LeBARf, Elizabeth Taylor and others could have learned from. She didn't use her celebrity status to stay in the limelight long after she was relevant. Although? Considering the impact she had during the early part of the 20th Century? She could have remained relevant for many years after her retirement.....

I hope you had a great life Shirley Temple Black. You should be seen as an inspiration to people who loved you and celebrities who don't even know who you were. RIP

Raktastic: walktoanarcade: digitalrain: walktoanarcade: digitalrain: Bah. I submitted this while incorporating two - count 'em - TWO of her movies in the headline.

Sad to hear about her dying though. She was a pretty remarkable woman. Something like 20 movies under her belt by the time she was 6 years old, plus a long career as a UN ambassador.

Godspeed, good lady.

Would you please share with the rest of the class? Let's hear 'it.

Bright eyes dim as Baby takes her final bow

(titles: Bright Eyes and Baby Take a Bow)

/ note, I didn't say it was a better headline, just that it incorporated more movie titles.

I like it!  It flows better and is poetic,a fitting end for a famous actress's life.  I think it's great, and that it incorporates two of her titles (gotta take your word and I do) is brilliant.

I had 2 as well. One was close to the green headline:

On the goood ship Lollipop, it's a sweeeet ship through the river Styx

The other was an ode to SOD

On the good ship Lollipop YOU'RE DEAD!

I like yours digitalrain much better.

Combine 'em: Bright eyes dim as Baby takes her final bow on the good ship Lollipop

Or throw more in: Our Poor Littlest Rebel Curly Top Princess's Bright Eyes Dim as Baby Takes a Bow Just Around the Corner on the Good Ship Lollipop.

We'll miss you Now and Forever As the Earth Turns Since You Went Away.

I'm stunned that she was such a mega-star so young and made it out of Hollywood with her sanity intact. She worked in an era before most (if not all) of the laws designed to protect child actors from abuse were written, and even with those in place, so many child stars become messed up. She even had money-grabbing parents and still managed to be healthy, happy, and contributing to the betterment of society into adulthood. She was truly exceptional.

From the New York Times obit: In 1932, Shirley was spotted by an agent from Educational Pictures and chosen to appear in "Baby Burlesks," a series of sexually suggestive one-reel shorts in which children played all the roles.

...wat.

When any of the two dozen children in "Baby Burlesks" misbehaved, they were locked in a windowless sound box with only a block of ice on which to sit.

...Seriously, how did she wind up so sane and productive?

In 1991, I was living in Prague (which was what young, dumb wannabe artists like me [at that time] were expected to do). I was crossing the street in Stare Mêsto (yeah, I know I wrote the HACEK upside down) when a diplomatic car with little american flags on the fenders was suddenly flying toward me. I jumped to the safety of the curb and turned around in time to see Mrs. Temple Black in the back seat cackling with her head tilted back a full awkward 90 degrees. I'm sure she was not laughing at (or even aware of) the fact that her driver had just narrowly missed killing me, but the adrenaline of the near miss and that awful cackling laughter haunt me to this day.

Yeah, I've seen clips of those on various biographies.

They're innocent enough, but still creepy.  It's a wonder they were ever circulated in the first place.

Probably like those decorative plates they sell at gift shops with kids shown in dating/couple scenarios that they're about 10 years too young for.  Some women love that sort of thing.

Anyhoo...

I watched a few Shirley Temple movies on YouTube a few weeks ago...Miss Annie Rooney is a trip. Temple swing dances, uses jive slang and talks about her "groovy" friends (I had no idea that term was used in the 1940s).

Shirley Temple was the first choice for Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, but MGM could not get her released from her contract at Fox in time to do it. Imagine what a very different movie that would have been had they done so.

No... your thinking of the liberal side of Hollywood. She was very active in Republican politics and was an ambassador to some country that I forget. A very smart, talented, classy lady.

so you're saying westboro will be picketing her funeral?


They could but they moved on to soldiers who died in combat a few  years ago.  That way they could be more loathsome.

Anyway, not to turn this into a Politics thread but as Republicans go, I could actually tolerate her.  During an interview back in the 1980s, she actually criticized Reagan for getting the Republicans to abandon support for the Equal Rights Amendment and allying the party with the religious right.  She also wasn't too happy about the anti-environmental policies of Reagan's Secretary of the Interior, James Watt.  Among today's Republicans that would probably put her in the same league with Jane Fonda and Hillary.

As for her movies, I never watched them.  I did like Fort Apache though.

She was an old-school Republican like Ike was. That was the party of my parents and grandparents.

Then they left the party in the 90s as it had left them.
