Beloved star turns 84

May 20, 2012
The OBSERVER

The most popular and adored child star of all time, Shirley Temple, celebrated her 84th birthday on April 23. Those of us who are in our 70s and 80s grew up watching her delightful movies during a trying time in our country - The Great Depression. For 15 cents, however, one could be transported into a carefree hour and a half watching this mite of a girl sing and dance into our hearts. Who could forget Shirley singing, "On the Good Ship Lollipop," and "Animal Crackers in my Soup?"
