Shirley Temple

By Jennifer Kenny
1     You've probably heard the tune "On the Good Ship Lollipop." Do you know who sings it? If you answered Shirley Temple, you are correct.
 
2     Shirley Temple was one of the biggest childhood celebrities of our time. She was born on April 23, 1928, in Santa Monica, California. With an ambitious mother, she began dance lessons at the age of 3. She also had her film debut at that same age when Hollywood discovered her in 1932. For a short time, Shirley Temple had a few tiny parts in minor features. By age 6, she was a huge celebrity. Her breakthrough performance came in the 1934 film Stand Up and Cheer!.
 
3     People in the audience loved to see Shirley Temple sing, dance, and act. They connected emotionally to her. They enjoyed her curly hair, her dimples, and her charm. She could also tap dance.
 
4     In 1934 at the age of six, she made nine feature films. They included Now and Forever, Little Miss Marker, Baby Take a Bow, and Bright Eyes. The last one, Bright Eyes, launched the hit song, "On the Good Ship Lollipop." It also earned her a special Academy Award.
