    Yeah, saw this earlier, sad. Not so old, I wonder what her health issues were.

    The biggest Hollywood star and the top box office moneymaker for years. Few people today would realize what a megastar she was. They think about Bette Davis, Clark Gable and others, but she actually eclipsed them all when it came to ticket sales.

    And you can still order a Shirley Temple drink. When was the last time you had a Joan Crawford on the rocks, or a Meryl Streep straight up? A remarkable life & career.
