1. Be an inspiration
A Los Angeles area bartender made a drink named after Shirley Temple in the 1930s. The origins of the drink are unknown, but it suggested that the drink was made at Chasen’s. Before 1941, her dolls had made $45 million in sales. Her films were seen by President Franklin D. Roosevelt as a way to give the nation hope in the Great Depression.
2. There will be hard times
MGM Studios offered Shirley Temple the role of Dorothy by in The Wizard of Oz. However, Darryl F. Zanuck, a producer and studio head at Fox, refused the offer so she could work on Susannah of the Mounties. Her last two films with Fox were box-office flops. In 1967, she lost a political campaign to represent the 11th District of California in Congress.
3. Try new things
After her retirement from film, she made appearance on television shows. NBC had a show called Shirley Temple’s Storybook. During the late 60s, she became involved in politics. She was appointed to be an ambassador to many countries. Shirley Temple was even in charge of the arrangements for Jimmy Carter’s inauguration and inauguration ball.
