I don't have anything especially significant to say about Mrs. Temple-Black, but I can't believe there ISN'T a discussion going already! The woman had a profound impact on film; later, she would leave her mark on television with her anthology story series. Later still, she would become a figure in world politics and, again, become a ground-breaking figure for women in international diplomacy. Finally, she has lived her "retirement" with dignity as she focuses on family, friends, and charity work, shunning the entertainment industry almost completely.

Take a look at how Shirley Temple-Black lived her life and follow her example, Ms. Lohan, Ms. Reid, etc. Let talent establish your reputation and live your private life IN PRIVATE. The paparazzi will eventually stop hounding you at every turn if you live a quiet life.

Oh--one more thing. I haven't seen all of Ms. Temple-Black's movies, but I grew up loving "The Blue Bird." The local station played it on Sunday nights sometimes (the same time-slot reserved for "Sound of Music," "Wizard of Oz," and those dubbed "Pippi Longstocking" movies). I now know all the background about the movie, so I appreciate it even more as an adult. Plus, it's great to see her play against type; rather than the sweet, precious little girl, she plays a rather annoying, complaining child. It's nice to see that, even as a child, Shirley Temple could actually "act." :-)

Whatever she's doing, I hope she is well and happy. She has lived her life with class and style. Thanks, Shirley.

I agree with you: there HAS to be a Shirley Temple discussion, and it is surprising that we two find ourselves alone here thus far.

What interests me most about her is totally psychological. How has she coped with being confronted with her childhood and memories from her childhood all of her entire adult life? How did it feel to discover that you were the breadwinner in the family -- not your father or mother? How is it possible that she is a Republican and not a Democrat?

I grew up with Shirley Temple movies! I still watch them today whenever I can find one on TV - I'm 60 years old and still cry during the sad scenes (especially the endings!). She made all girls believe that no matter what the odds, you can still come out on top in the end!
