Shirley Temple, who rose to fame as arguably one of the most famous child actresses in Hollywood history, has died. That's according to her publicist. She was 85. Temple starred in four massive box-office draws before she turned 10, commanding a then-unheard of 50-thousand dollars per movie. She retired from filmmaking at 22, then embarked on a new career as a foreign diplomat. She served in the U.S. delegation to the United Nations from 1969 to 1974 and she was U.S. Ambassador to Ghana from 1974 to 1976 and U.S. Ambassador to Czechoslovakia from 1989 to 1992.
