THE SCREENING ROOM: Remembering Shirley Temple

Academy Award-winning screen icon Shirley Temple Black, the child star who was a darling of Hollywood's Depression-era film musicals, died Feb. 10 at the age of 85.

Known for her performances in the 20th Century Fox films "Little Miss Marker," "Curly Top" and "The Littlest Rebel," Temple Black began performing at the age of three and was already a star before she was ten years old, immortalizing songs like "On the Good Ship Lollipop" and "Animal Crackers in My Soup."
