Shirley Temple Black passed away today at age 85. I spent countless hours as a kid watching this optimistic and cute, curly-haired and dimpled dynamo’s movies. I came across this wonderful tribute to her: Shirley Temple – America’s Little Darling, narrated by another great musical star and hoofer – Tommy Tune.
