Shirley Temple Dead at 85

Posted: February 11th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Shirley Temple Dead at 85Submit Comment
Shirley Temple, the child star of the 1930s who went on to a career in international diplomacy, died Tuesday in California at age 85. She died of natural causes at her home in Woodside, California.

"She was surrounded by her family and caregivers," said a statement. "We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and... our beloved mother, grandmother [and] great-grandmother."

Between 1935 and 1938 Temple was yet to turn ten years old, but was already the nation's top box office attraction and one of the nation's top earners. In fact, her films kept the troubled 20th Century Fox solvent, bringing in around $30 million for the studio. For her work, Temple earned $10,000 per week.

The actress wasn't able to remain popular as an adult, but continued appearing in films until the late 1940s. Instead, she evolved into a diplomat. She was a US representative at the United Nations, ambassador to Ghana, and ambassador to Czechoslovakia.

RIP in Temple. Really nothing else I can say since I never really watched anything she was in. Are there any movies of hers I should look out for in particular?
