Shirley Temple Black SNIP died surrounded by family at her home in Woodside, Calif. She was 85.

By six, she'd received a miniature Academy Award and left her hand and footprints in cement at Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

She married twice and gave birth to three children before venturing onto the political stage, serving as US ambassador to both Ghana and Czechoslovakia, a US representative to the United Nations and chief of protocol in the administration of President Gerald Ford.

I didn’t realize she was still going strong. I loved her movies when I was a kid.

I watched one of her few adult roles this past weekend, John Ford’s “Fort Apache.” She was a beautiful young lady.

Shirley Temple married her Fort Apache co-star, John Agar. That marriage did not last long.

My favorite Shirley Temple movie is “The Bachelor and the Bobbysoxer” with Cary Grant and Myrna Loy! Delightful!

I am addicted to the Encore Westerns channel. Especially the old Gunsmoke episodes.....a half hour one at 5:30 followed by an early (B&W) hourlong one at 6.

I can point out by name many western character actors. Like Hank worden, the skinny bald headed old man who shows up in many John Wayne movies, played “Old Mose” (I want my rockin chair) in “The Searchers.”

And her talent and appeal were exponentially greater than the belching, snot-nosed, mouthy brats who permeate TV and movies these days.

I think it helped greatly that she bid adieu to show biz at age 21.

I will always remember Shirley Temple as an early breast cancer advocate. She went public with her surgery at a time when most women were too terrified to even talk about theirs. She also put her life on the line by choosing to undergo a less disfiguring type of mastectomy that was still considered experimental.

She exemplified the best in modern feminism. She was a victor, never a victim.
