Shirley Temple at the Cow Palace

Today marks a year after the world lost the iconic Shirley Temple.

“When many think of Shirley Temple, they imagine a bright-eyed, spirited little darling with curly hair and an endearing smile..or maybe just the beverage. Regardless, Shirley Temple, had a life that far exceeded her childhood acting career and many of her achievements, though not widely known, are worth acknowledging.

Shirley Temple began acting at the young age of 3 and retired completely from films at 22 in 1950. She peaked in her performance career before her thirteenth birthday, and though her later work didn’t attract the attention and acclaim as films like “Bright Eyes” or “The Little Princess”, she remained an small, eternal light that shone through the Depression, giving hope to film-goers across the country.

However, Shirley Temple remained an active public servant throughout the remaining 64 years of her life. Whether appearing in pop culture, running for public office, or raising breast cancer awareness, there is still much that fans don’t realize about the child star from her signature style and career through her lesser known adulthood.”

And one little known fact:She and her daughter Lori visited The Beatles backstage at The Cow Palace at the start of their 1964 North American tour.
