give me doughnuts: stupiddream: Phil Hoffman and now Shirley Temple. Who'll be the 3rd? It always comes in threes.


Tracy Morgan is next.

She was in a class by her self, as most had lost their class over the years.
RIP.

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 don't think she's had a cherry for many decades.

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.

Dwight_Yeast: What I'm amazed at is that she was only 85. The bulk of her films were made in the 1930s!


Mickey Rooney is still around and he's got credits going back to (holy fark) 1926.

Is there any funeral they won't picket? They'd probably picket their own funerals if they could.

Ran for Congress in 1967 and lost. Another 20 years or so, she would have made it in.

onyxruby: Wow, I thought she passed away many years ago.

/celebrity news deprived
//I'm okay with that


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.

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.

I think I've seen all of her movies.  Back in the day of 6 television channels you had a choice on Sunday morning of politics, church tv or the ShirleyTemple movie.

Temple blossomed into a pretty young woman, but audiences lost interest, and she retired from films at 21.

How many times can you embark on this ship?  Does it travel on the river Styx?  Is Shirley Temple the ferryman?

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.

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. :)

R.I.P. Shirley.

Didn't ya know that folks that exalt the common man are meant to be ridiculed?  When you mention that these folks are the foundation of civilization, most of the elite think that means they need to be kept underfoot.

If you try to change that perception, prepare to be attacked.
