Freegal , the free music website has many songs of the adorable child actor Shirley Temple. She sang and danced in many movies in the 1930’s playing an orphan much of the time. Her characters got into many scrapes and had many adventures and was often responsible for getting two people together who had fallen in love. She was so popular that little girls everywhere started curling their hair so they could have cute ringlets just like Shirley. She even had her own line of clothes and a Shirley Temple doll. She also went on to act in the 1940’s but eventually got married and left show business. Later in her life she became an ambassador for The United States.
