Shirley Temple

Read Ed Morrissey's tribute to the most talented and uplifting child star ever: "Normally the passing of a film star of that era of natural causes would not be news, but this was no ordinary film star, either. Shirley Temple became an icon during the Depression of hope and optimism, and her cultural impact during that period and for decades afterward cannot be overestimated."

Masha Leon relates how Shirley Temple indirectly helped her come to America from Poland.
