Happy Birthday Shirley Temple!

The Classic Movies Digest was the first to remind me that today is Shirley Temple's birthday.  Although everyone remembers and adores the "Good Ship Lollipop" actress/singer/dancer from her younger days, I also enjoy seeing her in her older roles with the likes of Cary Grant and John Wayne in The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer (center) and Fort Apache.
