Hollywood lost an iconic figure today with the passing of Shirley Temple. Shirley's hand and footprints will forever be memorialized at the forecourt of TCL Chinese Theatres, where she autographed and noted "Love to You All". Born in Santa Monica, Shirley Temple began her acting career at the young age of 3. Shirley Temple took the motion picture world by storm as one of the most recognizable child actors in the 1930s and is commonly known for her roles in A Little Princess, Heidi and Curly Top. This iconic actress received many awards over the years including the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award and Kennedy Center Honors. Some may not realize that after retiring from her acting career in the 1960s, Shirley Temple dedicated the next 25 years of her life to public service and diplomacy including serving as the US Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. Shirley Temple died at the age of 85 of natural causes in her home in Woodside, CA. For insight into Shirley Temple's life, check out her autobiography titled Child Star.
