    Shirley Temple, iconic child star, dies at 85

    Shirley Temple, the dimpled, curly-haired child star who sang, 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 p.m. 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.

    Sorry to hear this.

    Although she'll always be remembered as the bubbly child star, who became the biggest box-office draw of the 1930s, she also made a few movies as an adult. Although these later roles were not generally among the lasting screen classics, she had considerable beauty, standing comparison with the established stars of the day.

    In later life, she entered public service, representing her country as an ambassador.

    RIP
