2016 47c Shirley Temple
Legends of Hollywood Series
 
An accomplished singer and dancer by the age of six, Shirley Temple was a ray of hope during the Great Depression.  She continued to spread  optimism in adulthood as a U.S. ambassador. 

Temple (1928-2014) began dancing when she was just three years old and was discovered a year later.  After a few small parts, she had her big breakthrough in Stand Up and Cheer! in 1934.  She quickly became a beacon of positivity as America trudged through the Depression.  President Roosevelt called her “Little Miss Miracle” for her positive effect on America’s morale. 

Later in 1934, Temple starred in Bright Eyes, which introduced her signature song, “On the Good Ship Lollipop.”  Her talents were recognized in 1935 when she became the first recipient of the Juvenile Oscar.

By age 12, Temple had already appeared in 43 films.  But fans could not accept their favorite child actress was growing up.  She continued acting through the 1960s, but then began a diplomatic career.  Temple first served as a delegate to the United Nations and then as the U.S. ambassador to Ghana and later, Czechoslovakia.  In Czechoslovakia, she witnessed the end of the Communist regime and helped open diplomatic relations.

Dancing her way into our hearts as a child, Shirley Temple proved her nickname “Miss Miracle” to be true, promoting peace and understanding as an adult.
