Shirley Temple

Shirley Temple is an actress, singer, dancer, businesswoman and diplomat of America. Between 1934 and 1938, she was the number one child actress on the Hollywood box office chart. Child actress Shirley Temple, who was one of the most popular young celebrities in her generation, became most popular in Captain January and Bright Eyes. Her performance of the song On a Good Ship Lollipop gave her talents more credit than before and won her an Academy Award.

She started acting at the age of 3 and immediately became an international star, with films Heidi, Little Miss Marker, and Curly Top boosting her popularity even more. However, starting her career at a very young age didn’t work well for Temple. She decided to retire at the age of 22 as her film career went downhill. Leaving her stardom behind, Temple channeled her skills into a different cause and focused on public service.
