Shirley Temple – America’s Sweetheart Dead at 85

NEW YORK – Shirley Temple has died at age 85. The actress was a child film star during the years of the great depression starring in many films.

Shirley Temple first found fame as a young girl during the depression era in films like Bright Eyes, Stand Up and Cheer and Curly Top. Her famous curly hair and tap dancing led to a generation of young girls seeking to emulate her.

She retired from acting in 1950 at the age of twenty-one, she later returned to the public as a Republican candidate for Congress, and then later served as a diplomat for the United States.

Shirley Temple died Monday at her home in Woodside, California, from natural causes.

“She was surrounded by her family and caregivers,” according to a statement issued by her family.

“We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and most importantly as our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and adored wife for 55 years of the late and much missed Charles Alden Black.”

Shirley Temple, through her acting, singing, and dancing was a world-wide inspiration to her fans.

She was awarded a special juvenile Oscar in 1935, at the tender age or six years old.

She remains the youngest person to ever receive an Oscar from Academy of Motion Pictures.
