Washington, Feb 12: Former child star Shirley Temple of the 'Curly Top' fame has passed away due to unknown reasons. She was 85.
According to Fox News, Temple, who had won a special Oscar at age 6 for her outstanding contribution to screen entertainment, died at her house near San Francisco.
Temple was the ultimate child star thanks to her dimpled, precocious and oh-so-adorable on-screen persona.
While talking about Temple, Allan Dwan, who directed her in 1937's 'Heidi' and 'Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm', said that she was absolutely marvelous and greatest in the world and was one of those actors who could remember their lines forever.
Her other hit movies included 1934's 'Bright Eyes', 1936's 'Dimples and 'Poor Little Rich Girl' (1936). (ANI)
