McGrits: R.I.P Little Orphan Annie

/amidoingitright?


That's more of a sight gag.  You should have used a picture from the 80s movie.

I admire her for her work as an adult, but I can't watch a Shirley Temple movie without wanting to punch her fat, smug, squeaky child face. There is something about her that irks (irked, past tense now, I guess) the bejesus out of me.

/there, I said it
//why yes, I am dead inside. Why do you ask?

Oldiron_79: Lord Apathy: randomX: Old age, at home, surrounded by family. That's how I want to go too.

At home, in bed, at the ripe old age of 93.  Shot to death by the jealous husband of my 25 year old mistress.

I want to die of a viagra and blow overdose whilst nailing 2 or more chicks at the same time.

GalFriday: bim1154: Have always wondered how many weirdos she attracted when she was in her prime.

OK - so here is my weirdo story from my days as a deputy prosecutor.  We had a child molestation case and possible child pornography case.  A search warrant was served on the man's home and the police found EVERY SINGLE Shirley Temple movie ever made along with all of these dolls that were made of her.
No child porn.  The man was convicted of molestation.  But yeah, she was at least one pedophile's dream.


Surely tentpole?

Weird. Just last week I was wondering if she was still alive and looked her up on IMDB to check.  Havent heard much from her the last 10 years or so.

manwithplanx: Does this mean Cartoon Network will finally stop playing ads for her movie collection? They've been playing the same farking ad since I was a kid.


Stop playing them?  Now that she died, those commercials will be running nonstop for the near future.

dittybopper: She was quite the stunning young woman at age 21:

[25.media.tumblr.com image 500x375]

I don't care how sharp her knees were, I'd have hit it.


Saw a movie with her adult self once...recognized her by the way she delivered the line "Oh, no no!"
Same headshake, inflection and facial expression with which she'd deliver it as a child.


/ Safe journey, good lady

Bohnanza: This morning, millions worldwide are coming to grips with the fact that Shirley Temple wasn't already dead.


I gotta be honest, i thought she was either dead or older than 85 if still alive.
 
2014-02-11 11:55:21 AM

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

Screen legend Shirley Temple embarks on the Good Ship Lollipop one last time

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


In this case, it's a night trip. Into bed you hop, with this command: "All aboard for Candyland."

Waldo Pepper: 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.

IIRC  Shirley and Rin Tin Tin had a huge impact on saving the movie industry during the depression.


Wrong decade for Rin Tin Tin. He was a star in the 20s and died in 1932. True enough about Shirley Temple. Her films saved Fox from bankruptcy, although looking back, maybe that wasn't such a good thing.

Buzz Osborne was her son in law.  I like to image the holidays.

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?

She had a photographic memory, in her bio she said her mother would read the next day's lines to her once and she knew them as well as the lines of all the others, and she would correct the adults on the set when they made mistakes. This didn't always go over well. She is irreplaceable. What a great life. Rest in peace.

GungFu: 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.


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.

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.

AirForceVet: 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.

At least I know now that I'm not the only one that thought she was already long gone.

She must have been REALLY innactive for no one to notice her at all until she finally died.

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
