danced sobbed and grinned her way into the hearts of Depression-era moviegoers has died according to publicist Cheryl Kagan She was 85 Temple known in private life as Shirley Temple Black died Monday night at about 11 pm at her home near San Francisco She was surrounded by family members and caregivers Kagan said “We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor as a diplomat and most importantly as our beloved mother grandmother great-grandmother and adored wife for fifty-five years of the late and much missed Charles Alden Black” a family statement said In this 1933 file

(AP) A talented and ultra-adorable entertainer Shirley Temple was America’s top box-office draw from 1935 to 1938 a record no other child star has come near She beat out such grown-ups as Clark Gable Bing Crosby Robert Taylor Gary Cooper and Joan Crawford In 1999 the American Film Institute ranking of the top 50 screen legends ranked Temple at No 18 among the 25 actresses She appeared in scores of movies and kept children singing “On the Good Ship Lollipop” for generations Temple was credited with helping save 20th Century Fox from bankruptcy with films such as “Curly Top” and “The Littlest Rebel” She even had a drink named after her an appropriately sweet and innocent cocktail of ginger ale and grenadine topped with a maraschino cherry Temple blossomed into a pretty young woman but audiences lost interest and she retired from films at 21 She raised a family and later became active in politics and held several diplomatic posts in Republican administrations including ambassador to Czechoslovakia during the historic collapse of communism in 1989 “I have one piece of advice for those of you who want to receive the lifetime achievement award Start early” she quipped in 2006 as she was honored by the Screen Actors Guild But she also said that evening that her greatest roles were as wife mother and grandmother “There’s nothing like real love Nothing” Her husband of more than 50 years Charles Black had died just a few months earlier They lived for many years in the San Francisco suburb of Woodside Temple’s expert singing and tap dancing in the 1934 feature “Stand Up and Cheer” first gained her wide notice The number she performed with future Oscar winner James Dunn “Baby Take a Bow” became the title of one of her first starring features later that year Also in 1934 she starred in “Little Miss Marker” a comedy-drama based on a story by Damon Runyon that showcased her acting talent In “Bright Eyes” Temple introduced “On the Good Ship Lollipop” and did battle with a charmingly bratty Jane Withers launching Withers as a major child star too She was “just absolutely marvelous greatest in the world” director Allan Dwan told filmmaker-author Peter Bogdanovich in his book “Who the Devil Made It: Conversations With Legendary Film Directors” ”With Shirley you’d just tell her once and she’d remember the rest of her life” said Dwan who directed “Heidi” and “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm” ”Whatever it was she was supposed to do — she’d do it … And if one of the actors got stuck she’d tell him what his line was — she knew it better than he did” Temple’s mother Gertrude worked to keep her daughter from being spoiled by fame and was a constant presence during filming Her daughter said years later that her mother had been furious when a director once sent her off on an errand and then got the child to cry for a scene by frightening her “She never again left me alone on a set” she said Temple became a nationwide sensation Mothers dressed their little girls like her and a line of dolls was launched that are now highly sought-after collectables Her immense popularity prompted President Franklin D Roosevelt to say that “as long as our country has Shirley Temple we will be all right” “When the spirit of the people is lower than at any other time during this Depression it is a splendid thing that for just 15 cents an American can go to a movie and look at the smiling face of a baby and forget his troubles” Roosevelt said She followed up in the next few years with a string of hit films most with sentimental themes and musical subplots She often played an orphan as in “Curly Top” where she introduced the hit “Animal Crackers in My Soup” and “Stowaway” in which she was befriended by Robert Young later of “Father Knows Best” fame She teamed with the great black dancer Bill “Bojangles” Robinson in two 1935 films with Civil War themes “The Little Colonel” and “The Littlest Rebel” Their tap dance up the steps in “The Little Colonel” (at a time when interracial teamings were unheard-of in Hollywood) became a landmark in the history of film dance Some of her pictures were remakes of silent films such as “Captain January” in which she recreated the role originally played by the silent star Baby Peggy Montgomery in 1924 “Poor Little Rich Girl” and “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm” done a generation earlier by Mary Pickford were heavily rewritten for Temple with show biz added to the plots to give her opportunities to sing In its review of “Rebecca” the show business publication Variety complained that a “more fitting title would be ‘Rebecca of Radio City’” She won a special Academy Award in early 1935 for her “outstanding contribution to screen entertainment” in the previous year “She is a legacy of a different time in motion pictures She caught the imagination of the entire country in a way that no one had before” actor Martin Landau said when the two were honored at the Academy Awards in 1998 Temple’s fans agreed Her fans seemed interested in every last golden curl on her head: It was once guessed that she had more than 50 Her mother was said to have done her hair in pin curls for each movie with every hairstyle having exactly 56 curls On her eighth birthday — she actually was turning 9 but the studio wanted her to be younger — Temple received more than 135000 presents from around the world according to “The Films of Shirley Temple” a 1978 book by Robert Windeler The gifts included a baby kangaroo from Australia and a prize Jersey calf from schoolchildren in Oregon “She’s indelible in the history of America because she appeared at a time of great social need and people took her to their hearts” the late Roddy McDowall a fellow child star and friend once said Although by the early 1960s she was retired from the entertainment industry her interest in politics soon brought her back into the spotlight She made an unsuccessful bid as a Republican candidate for Congress in 1967 After Richard Nixon became president in 1969 he appointed her as a member of the US delegation to the United Nations General Assembly In the 1970s she was US ambassador to Ghana and later US chief of protocol She then served as ambassador to Czechoslovakia during the administration of the first President Bush A few months after she arrived in Prague in mid-1989 communist rule was overthrown in Czechoslovakia as the Iron Curtain collapsed across Eastern Europe “My main job (initially) was human rights trying to keep people like future President Vaclav Havel out of jail” she said in a 1999 Associated Press interview Within months she was accompanying Havel the former dissident playwright when he came to Washington as his country’s new president She considered her background in entertainment an asset to her political career “Politicians are actors too don’t you think” she once said “Usually if you like people and you’re outgoing not a shy little thing you can do pretty well in politics” Born in Santa Monica to an accountant and his wife Temple was little more than 3 years old when she made her film debut in 1932 in the Baby Burlesks a series of short films in which tiny performers parodied grown-up movies sometimes with risque results Among the shorts were “War Babies” a parody of “What Price Glory” and “Polly Tix in Washington” with Shirley in the title role Her young life was free of the scandals that plagued so many other child stars — parental feuds drug and alcohol addiction — but Temple at times hinted at a childhood she may have missed out on She stopped believing in Santa Claus at age 6 she once said when “Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph” After her years at the top maintaining that level of stardom proved difficult for her and her producers The proposal to have her play Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz” didn’t pan out (20th Century Fox chief Darryl Zanuck refused to lend out his greatest asset) And “The Little Princess” in 1939 and “The Blue Bird” in 1940 didn’t draw big crowds prompting Fox to let Temple go Among her later films were “The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer” with Cary Grant and “That Hagen Girl” with Ronald Reagan Several including the wartime drama “Since You Went Away” were produced by David O Selznick One “Fort Apache” was directed by John Ford who had also directed her “Wee Willie Winkie” years earlier Her 1942 film “Miss Annie Rooney” included her first on-screen kiss bestowed by another maturing child star Dickie Moore After her film career effectively ended she concentrated on raising her family and turned to television to host and act in 16 specials called “Shirley Temple’s Storybook” on ABC In 1960 she joined NBC and aired “The Shirley Temple Show” Her 1988 autobiography “Child Star” became a best-seller Temple had married Army Air Corps private John Agar the brother of a classmate at Westlake her exclusive LA girls’ school in 1945 He took up acting and the pair appeared together in two films “Fort Apache” and “Adventure in Baltimore” She and Agar had a daughter Susan in 1948 but she filed for divorce the following year She married Black in 1950 and they had two more children Lori and Charles That marriage lasted until his death in 2005 at age 86 In 1972 she underwent successful surgery for breast cancer She issued a statement urging other women to get checked by their doctors and vowed “I have much more to accomplish before I am through” During a 1996 interview she said she loved both politics and show business “It’s certainly two different career tracks” she said “both completely different but both very rewarding personally” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sankhayan Ghosh | Updated: September 15 2014 1:53 pm Parineeti Chopra says she resents the ‘bubbly’ tag; in Daawat-e-Ishq she plays a Hyderabadi shoe salesgirl in love with food Related News Every time there is an interview with Parineeti Chopra before the release of a film the venue — almost always the Yash Raj Films (YRF) office — serves as a reminder of her rise to stardom Five years ago working as a marketing intern for the production house Chopra would do what their team of publicists do today run up and down the corridors helping coordinate interviews with stars Today having switched sides she sits in the comfortable confines of a conference room talking to the media about her latest release Daawat-e-Ishq even as a mini-entourage fusses over her However her ex-colleagues say she has changed very little in spite of the success “Can you keep a knife next to me so that I can use it the next time a reporter calls me bubbly” she asks one of her former colleagues While this gives a glimpse of her spirited self it also shows that her camaraderie with her earlier associates is unlike that of a star “I am not the typical Bollywood actress” she says “You won’t see me at parties and screenings very much If it’s 10 pm I might be at home asleep” The spontaneity one has come to associate with Chopra’s on-screen performances she explains stems from the fact that she doesn’t try too hard The seductive world of glamour is irresistible but she has a life outside the film industry she says Acting is a career just as her high-paying banking job earlier was “In fact I was more attached to banking” says Chopra who passed out from Manchester Business School UK “I have a fairly disciplined life and don’t have a great attachment to this profession I absolutely love performing in front of the camera I think it’s the greatest high one can get if you love it but the day it doesn’t work for me I’ll do something else I have my degrees and other passions to fall back on” she says In her brief career Chopra hasn’t taken a wrong step yet Ever since she made her debut with a scene-stealing performance in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl (2011) she emerged as an impressive new talent as well as a top contender for the part of a leading lady At a time when being the hero’s arm candy in a mass entertainer warrants an entry into the Rs 100 crore club she has stuck to her guns doing complex solid woman characters “I want to be the best actress” she says “Not heroine I want every director and viewer to have the confidence that I’ll be able to pull off any role” After Daawat-e-Ishq Chopra has Shaad Ali’s Kill Dil in November and Dinesh Vijan’s film opposite Saif Ali Khan next year For an actor who says that she doesn’t watch too many films — studies took precedence and cinema was considered a waste of time in her formative years — it is interesting to find out the method behind her acting “I am spontaneous by preparation” she says “I try and become the character before I reach the sets I pick up the body language voice expressions of the character; they are in my head but I don’t rehearse the scenes Instead I directly face the camera” says the 26-year-old who was born and raised in Ambala Haryana After a slew of intense portrayals Chopra’s next is a romcom where she essays the role of a middle-class Hyderabadi shoe salesgirl in love with food She says she signed up for Daawat-e-Ishq because unlike her earlier films — Ishaqzaade (2012) on honour killings Shuddh Desi Romance (2013) based on the commitment phobia that today’s youth experience and Hasee Toh Phasee (2014) where she plays a social misfit — this film gave her the chance to do a “breezy and happy” romance without any “issues” The film releases next Friday About a month ago at the promo launch of the film in which she will be seen opposite Aditya Roy Kapoor Chopra sang a couple of lines from one of the film’s songs She sounded more in tune than many of her contemporaries’ recent attempts at singing Given the fad of actors turning into singers to garner publicity for their films Chopra hasn’t sung in her latest venture Despite a degree in music she is in no mood to join the bandwagon “I’ll do it when the right time comes I don’t think I’ll need autotune to do that” she adds For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service
