I’m a tad surprised at the un-amount of ceremony this passing is bringing. Perhaps because none of “us” grew up with her – or did we? I saw a ton of Temple films growing up. None of them stuck with me as particularly note-worthy, but for her time, she. was. it!

What a gorgeous looking child actor. That still posted above is one of sheer movie star. Kind of makes me wanna go back and rewatch HEIDI or THE LITTLE PRINCESS or BABY TAKE A BOW. The only film of hers I could find on Netflix (US) is Miss Annie Rooney. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen that one.

Kind of a strangely sad day to see her go. Even if no one is really talking about it.

Oh, the classic blogs are talking about it like crazy. I think a lot of non-classic bloggers aren’t as invested in her. I saw Temple films growing up, but I saw everything classic growing up. I bet a lot of the youngsters these days didn’t really grow up with her films, but I could be wrong.

My experience with Ms. Temple and all her films is very limited. I’ve seen far more Judy Garland films or Juno Temple films for that matter.

I’ve drank more Shirley Temples than seen her films.

We all know who Shirley Temple is, but for most of us we really grew up with Shirley Temple as an idea rather than a human being.
