The cause of death was not disclosed. She made her first appearance on the screen at the age of 3, and by the time she turned 13, she had already appeared in 46 feature films. She made seven movies in 1934 alone, including Bright Eyes, in which she sang the song with which she was most closely identified, “The Good Ship Lollipop.” She did a memorable tap dance with Bill “Bojangles” Robinson in the Civil War musical The Little Colonel. During the Great Depression, She was the top box-office attraction from 1935 through 1938. At one point, President Franklin Roosevelt famously declared, “As long as our country has Shirley Temple, we will be all right.” In middle age she was a diplomat to the UN and ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia and finally chief of protocol at the State Department.</div><p> Thu, 13 Feb 2014 15:17:09 +0000 Patrick Campion 41509 at http://wemu.org Remembering Shirley Temple Black and Sid Caesar; Events for Your Valentine's Weekend Cinema Chat: Oscars in Review http://wemu.org/post/cinema-chat-oscars-review <p>Reviewing the Oscars and the Razzies;&nbsp; a special screening of Hitchock's 'Marnie';&nbsp; plus new openings downtown, and at the cineplexes on this week's Cinema Chat from WEMU.</p><p></p> Thu, 28 Feb 2013 13:48:22 +0000 Russ Collins & David Fair 26135 at http://wemu.org Cinema Chat: Oscars in Review Cinema Chat: Guide to the Oscars http://wemu.org/post/cinema-chat-guide-oscars <p>More about the Oscars, including Russ's sure-fire winners; Oscar nominee shorts at the Michigan, and new openings downtown and at the cineplexes.&nbsp; It's all on this week's Cinema Chat from WEMU.</p><p></p> Thu, 21 Feb 2013 14:35:48 +0000 Russ Collins & Clark Smith 25837 at http://wemu.org Cinema Chat: Guide to the Oscars Cinema Chat: Russ Celebrates 30 Years at the Michigan Theater http://wemu.org/post/cinema-chat-russ-celebrates-30-years-michigan-theater <p>Oscar shorts; Star Wars spin-0ffs; new releases, and a celebration on this week's Cinema Chat from WEMU, featuring the Executive Director of the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, Russ Collins.</p><p></p> Thu, 07 Feb 2013 13:40:36 +0000 David Fair & Russ Collins 25239 at http://wemu.org Cinema Chat: Russ Celebrates 30 Years at the Michigan Theater Cinema Chat http://wemu.org/post/cinema-chat-333 <p>Oscar nomination details, new openings downtown, and the latest releases at the cineplexes on this week&#39;s Cinema Chat from WEMU.</p> Thu, 02 Feb 2012 15:25:15 +0000 David Fair & Russ Collins 9129 at http://wemu.org
