Black identified her “discoverer” as Jay Gorney, a songwriter for Fox Film’s “Stand Up and Cheer.”. Her little song-and-dance audition prompted the actor Harold Lloyd to proclaim to Shirley’s mother, Gertrude, “My God! Another Coogan.” It didn’t take long for Shirley Temple to eclipse Jackie Coogan as a child star. Before she was 12 she had made, among 40 movies, “Little Miss Marker,” “The Little Colonel” and “The Littlest Rebel” and sang probably her signature song, “On the Good Ship Lollipop” in “Bright Eyes.” “Dimples” fit her smile. She wore Heidi’s clothes in “Heidi.” She had critics writing with rapture about “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm” and she was awarded a miniature Oscar at the Academy Awards in 1935.

For more than four years in the late 1930s, Shirley Temple was No, 1 in box-office ticket sales, and more than a million little girls wore Shirley Temple dresses, according to Lester David and Irene David, two of her biographers, But in 1940 her box-office popularity fell to double pointed photo print 5x7 pointe shoes toe shoes sword ballet No, 5 and George and Gertrude Temple bought their daughter’s contract for a reported $300,000, The Davids characterized 20th Century Fox’s goodbye gifts to Shirley Temple — an upright piano and some of the costumes she wore — as miserly..

Some saw the irony in her movie “Poor Little Rich Girl,” foretelling Shirley Temple Black’s misfortune with her own wealth. In “Child Star,” she wrote, “Between Father and me it was a dead heat who was least interested in seeing me financially independent.”. As an adult, she confronted her parents about the more than $3 million she had earned as an actress. She discovered that after bills had been paid, the $800,000 left had been invested in stocks and bonds owned by her parents. Shirley Temple Black was left with $44,000 and the title to a cottage she had used on a movie lot.

Although Black kept making movies into the ’50s for producer David O, Selznick — among them two World War II films “Since You Went Away” and the critically praised “I’ll Be Seeing You” — her career essentially was over, On Sept, 19, 1945, 17-year-old Shirley Temple had married 24-year-old John Agar, an Army sergeant whose father was an Illinois meatpacker, He, too, became an actor, but Selznick’s pairing of the couple in John Ford’s “Fort double pointed photo print 5x7 pointe shoes toe shoes sword ballet Apache” and “Adventure in Baltimore” didn’t advance either career, Their marriage produced Linda Susan Agar in January 1948 and then dissolved in December 1949, (Agar died in April 2002.)..

In 1950, Shirley Temple married Charles Alden Black, a Stanford graduate and son of the president of Pacific Gas & Electric Co. They had a son, Charles Jr., and a daughter, Lori, and the couple never had a fight, Shirley Temple Black wrote in her autobiography. That marriage lasted until his death in 2005 at age 86. While Charlie Black moved from the American Broadcasting Cos. to then-Stanford Research Institute to Ampex Corp. and finally to his own marine research company, Mardela Corp., his wife established herself as a community volunteer and mother in Woodside.

She was not finished as a public person, however, In 1967, candidate Shirley Temple Black’s name recognition could not carry her to Congress, and she lost decisively in a Republican primary contest with Paul N, “Pete” McCloskey, who went on to win election and remain in the House of Representatives for 16 years, Black became a near-million-dollar fundraiser for the GOP in the 1968 presidential election and earned an appointment double pointed photo print 5x7 pointe shoes toe shoes sword ballet as delegate to the 24th General Assembly of the United Nations..

A mastectomy in 1972 to thwart breast cancer hardly fazed Black publicly and she issued a statement urging other women to get checked by their doctors and vowed, “I have much more to accomplish before I am through.”. She accepted a Nixon appointment to the President’s Council on Environmental Quality. In the 1970s, President Ford named her U.S. ambassador to Ghana and then the first female chief of protocol, which carried the dual rank of ambassador and assistant secretary of state.

She followed with other United Nations appointments in the 1980s, moving to Prague as U.S, ambassador during the last months of communism in Eastern Europe, In the Mercury News’ millennium series “Voices of Our Time” published in 1999, she recalled a November 1989 celebration of Czechs and Slovaks, “It was held on the Letna double pointed photo print 5x7 pointe shoes toe shoes sword ballet Plain, where almost a million people gathered one cold, snowy night and listened to speeches from Vaclav Havel and others, Then they all took their keys from their pockets and shook them in the air, jangled them up high, It was a clean, undeniable call for liberty, That was an amazing sight..
