    It was sad she didn't continue as an actress after her youth but the world got a diplomat.

    I doubt there are many around who saw her movies while she was America's darling.

    "From 1935 to 1939 she was the most popular movie star in America, with Clark Gable a distant second. She received more mail than Greta Garbo and was photographed more often than President Franklin D. Roosevelt."

    I've never seen a single movie of hers. To be honest, I would have bet that she had died a long time ago.

    Interestingly enough though, I was just reading wiki and Lorax of The Melvins was her daughter. Even she was old in the early nineties.

    Sad day for her famly and the end of such a rich and fascinating life.

    Little known Shirley Temple fact:

    Shirley's image appears 3 times on the cover of the Sgt. Pepper album.
