Shirley Temple dazzled us all with lovable cherubic characters. She began her career in 1932 with Educational Pictures at the age of 4 portraying various roles in the Baby Burlesks short films.

After Educational Pictures went bankrupt, Ms. Temple signed with Fox Film Corporation. In 1934, Bright Eyes was released. It was a huge success for Ms. Temple, and it was where her signature song, “On the Good Ship Lollipop”, was first featured.

Film after film, Shirley Temple had a wildly successful career. She retired from films in 1950 and dedicated her life to her family and as a public servant.

On February 10, 2014, Shirley Temple Black passed away peacefully in her Californian home surrounded by her family.
