She died yesterday (U.S. time), aged 85 years old.
She is quite possibly the most famous of all child stars. She was loved by the young and the old.
She never went off the rails like so many other child stars.
A wonderful woman who left show business and became the U.S. Ambassador to Czechoslovakia and Ghana, plus many more amazing achievements.
We will miss you Shirley.
Here are some of my favourite photos of showbiz Shirley.
