Shirley Temple who sadly passed away yesterday.
Her popularity went downhill in Hollywood once once she became a teenager and had outgrown her cute little girl image, but she'll always have a place in my heart!
It appears she went on to have a full-filling life and I must admit I was actually a little surprised she was still alive in 2014!
It would seem absurd that during the mid 1970’s I was watching movies from the 30’s and 40’s
Bill Collins would screen and host his Movie show - we watched Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis, Albert & Costello, Doris Day films (my favourite) and Elvis Presley movies too...
so it was a bit of a tradition to watch the golden oldies every weekend especially if my parents had gone out for the evening and we were at my Grandparents having a sleepover - they'd allow us to stay up late to watch.
I remember Shirley Temple movies bought us so much joy – so entertaining
and full of cute factor!
