I used to watch her movies when I was little. I especially liked the ones where Bojangles would dance with her. RIP

The night sky is black
Shirley Temple Black.
It's grey, it's grey,
since she went away

Oh-oh, what can I do??
'cause I-I-I-I-I,
I'm feelin' blue.

I wasn't much of a fan but I too watched her movies when I was a kid. Whatever happened to good, wholesome entertainment? RIP Shirley, cute as a puppy.

Interesting how her movies still have an impact 80 years later. Nobody around today can compare to her childhood performances.

She did a film as a teenager with Cary Grant and Myrna Loy. The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer. Interesting period piece.
