1928: Actress, singer and dancer Shirley Temple, who started her film career at the age of 3 and starred in hit films such as "Curly Top," "Heidi" and "The Little Princess," is born in Santa Monica, California. Her popularity waned as she reached adolescence and she retired from film completely by the age of 22. In 1967, she ran unsuccessfully for United States Congress, and was appointed U.S. ambassador to Ghana in 1974 and to Czechoslovakia in 1989. She died at age 85 on Feb. 10, 2014, from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
