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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.
