Shirley Temple Dies Of Natural Causes [Video]
Quite possibly America’s first big child star Shirley Temple Black has passed away at the age of 85.
According to reports, she died from natural causes at her home in Woodside, California.
TMZ has a great list of some of her greatest accomplishments.
She was so popular a drink was named after her, and kids copied her curly haircut the way people copied Farrah Fawcett’s decades later.
In 1934, she was given a miniature Oscar for her work.
Black hung up the acting towel at 21 — back in 1950 — and after a break she returned to the public eye by throwing her hat in the political arena … running for Congress as a Republican.
She became a U.S. diplomat … serving as U.S. ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.
