  • >> LEE: Welcome back to SourceFed, I'm Lee Newton

  • The world has lost another smiling face of the screen as Shirley Temple Black has passed

  • away at the age of 85. Shirley Temple was best known for her delightful blond curls

  • and her adorable charm when she graced the screen as one of the most popular stars of

  • the 1930s.

  • Earning her first acting role at the age of three, Shirley Temple shot to stardom and

  • was given a special juvenile Oscar when she was only six years old and is still the youngest

  • person to ever receive an Academy Award.

  • Known as "America's little darling," she sang and danced her way through films

  • including Bright Eyes which gave us her timeless performance of the song "On the Good Ship

  • Lollipop".

  • America loved her so much, that FDR dubbed her "Little Miss Miracle" for raising

  • morale during the Great Depression. She also saved Fox from bankruptcy but didn't receive

  • a nickname for that.

  • Retiring from acting in 1950 at the age of 21 after making 43 feature films, Temple turned

  • to politics and diplomacy. Richard Nixon appointed her as a member of the US delegation to the

  • UN and in 1974 was named US ambassador to Ghana by Gerald Ford.

  • Temple passed away Monday in Woodside, California from natural causes surrounded by her family.

  • Rest in Peace you little angel. It is for you that I present my rendition of On the

  • Good Ship Lollipop.
