You don't need the great depression to need to be cheered up and no one can spread cheer better than a Shirley Temple movie. I'm sure many more generations will benefit from her eternal optimism. What a legacy for any human.

I have only fond memories of Shirley Temple. My name was taken Shirley's daughter, Linda Susan Agar, but with a twist on the spelling. My mother adored Shirley Temple, and when I was a toddler, she always tried to perm my hair "Shirley Temple" style. Rest in peace Shirley.
