When I woke up this morning and checked Twitter and saw the announcement of Shirley Temple’s passing… I was very sad. Shirley Temple movies (I mean, really all of them) were some of my favorite memories as a kid. Besides It Takes Two, we used to rent all the Shirley Temple movies from Blockbuster. I think we even owned a few VHS tapes!
Oh, I just love Shirley Temple. Isn’t it wonderful that she’s leaving behind a legacy that will continue to last through the generations. Her movies and her curls and her little dances are so timeless that I can’t imagine not having my kids and their kids watching the same movies.
What was your favorite film of hers?
PS Have you seen the movie Child Star: The Shirley Temple Story? Loved it!! Now I feel like I need to rewatch it this weekend.
