Beloved Star Shirley Temple Black Dead At 85

One of Hollywood's most beloved stars is gone.

She was one of the last links to the Golden Age of Hollywood - the time of big studio moguls, blockbuster movies and real stars.

She was one of the original child stars.

She was a cutie, a beauty and later in life a good Republican and a diplomat. A personal friend of President Ronald Reagan, she exemplified our highest values: decency, family life, sensibility, faith and patriotism.

Shirley Temple Black is dead at 85.

She died of natural causes at her Woodside, California, home. She was surrounded by family and caregivers, a statement from Cheryl Kagan said.

She began acting at age three and became a massive box-office draw before turning 10, commanding a then-unheard of salary of $50,000 per movie.
