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.

Godspeed, good lady.

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.

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

I was just thinking about her a couple of weeks ago.  For some now forgotten reason I managed to google both her & Dick Van Dyke somewhat close together.  I was surprised to find that she was still alive (well, at the time anyway), & astonished that Dick is actually older than her. {/csb}

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

way south: In other news, Shirley Temple was alive...

/I don't know why I thought that wasn't the case.
/Child star in the black and white film era, guess I presumed the cocaine and hard liquor did her in years ago.


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.

PETA still looking for a spokeswoman.

Animal crackers in my soup
Monkeys and rabbits loop the loop

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.

Huh. She lived in Woodside. 20 miles south of San Francisco. Had no idea.
