They’re dropping like flies. According to reports, Shirley Temple has died. She was 85. She passed away at her home near SF surrounded by family. Temple was best known for being that sickeningly sweet little girl from films like Bright Eyes and Curly Top.
By the time she was 5, she was stealing the show. In 1934, she was awarded a special miniature Oscar for her outstanding contribution to the silver screen. She led the box office for three straight years. A drink was named after her. Children copied her curls. A doll in her likeness became a collector’s item. Eventually, as she aged, her Hollywood popularity declined.
At 17, she married John Agar, but the marriage didn’t last. Her second marriage, to San Francisco businessman Charles Black, endured — and allowed her to enter the world of politics. She served as a U.S. ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.
She is survived by her three children, a granddaughter and two great-granddaughters.
