This Monday the world bid farewell to the famous and beloved Shirley Temple Black. The 1930′s famous actress passed away at the age of 85 in her San Francisco home. She saved the now media titan, Fox from collapsing after the Great Depression in the early 1930′s. Not only did she save Fox but she served as a beacon of hope and prosperity for the millions of Americans who had lost everything in the financial disaster. Shirley was also America’s No. 1 box office entertainer from 1935 to through 1938. She hailed the charts of Clark Gable and Bing Crosby with her films,“Curly Top,” and “Heidi”. All of which are now classics in their own right and still celebrated as one of the greatest family films of the early 1900′s.
