The beloved American film star Shirley Temple stole hearts as a child actor from the age of three years old. Born in 1928 in Santa Monica, California, Temple performed as a talented dancer and singer in both film and television roles. One of the youngest superstars ever, Temple made 11 films in 1933, all of which provided hope and entertainment during the challenging years of the Great Depression.
By age 12, Shirley Temple had difficulty finding new film roles and left the movie industry. She was briefly married to John Agar in 1945, before she found lasting happiness with Charles Black in 1950. In later adulthood, Temple entered the arena of politics and served as a diplomat and ambassador from the 1960s through the 1990s.
