Shirley Temple Black, the legendary child star who charmed Depression-era moviegoers, passed away last night at the age of 85. A talented and precociously professional entertainer, she was America's sweetheart, captivating audiences with her singing, dancing and cherubic curls.

As an adult, after retiring from film, she served as an ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia and served on the board of many large enterprises including The Walt Disney Company, Del Monte and the National Wildlife Federation.
