she is a great actor but she was forced into it. i remember seeing an interview saying that she would never let her kids act because it ruins childhood.

After a a few minutes of her movie, you'd want to strangle her.   She was really a midget. Her mother made her smoke and sleep in a short bed!

So far, from reading these ratings, I've learned that she survived cancer, there's a drink named after her, and, some people wish she was their daughter. I remember when Cindy Brady hated her because she couldn't be her, and, of course, I remember most of her movies. Her acting ability was awesome, especially for her time, when there was not as much in special effects and other technology available. If she was a child actor today, I would still love her. The thing I remember the most is her dancing...she was so good that they put her right beside the best dancers in history!

Let''s be real!!!! Shirley Temple has to be #1. Who else can you think of in movie history had more popularity and did many different roles and loved by all. She could play drama, comedy, musicals and could dance. If you ever saw her when Dancing with Bill Bojangles Robinson in THE LITTLE COLONEL (1935). Then there is no argument, especially when you think of the word 'stairs'.

How could anyone not love her cute little ringlets!?!? Her movies are funny and entertaining, but sometimes a little boring. But overall funny. She's the best child actress there ever was and probably ever will be! She was very cute when she was a kid and pretty as an adult.

Shirley has got to be one of the best of all time. When you see a Shirley Temple movie you don't even think of the name you just call it a Shirley Temple movie because she was the movie. Most child actors today are surrounded by big name actors and they are not even a main draw to the movie. I mean seriously, who says I'm going to see a Haley Joel movie? Haley is a good actor but I saw sixth sense because of Bruce Willis. Her movies were popular then they are still popular now and they will be fifty years from now. Shirley had to actually act and perform. Today so much is done for the actors. Shirley stole the screen.

Too bad we can only go up to five on our ratings. There is no limit to the stars I would give Shirley Temple. When I was a little boy I was so in love with her, even if she was old enough to be my mother. Maybe child actors nowadays are more sophisticated, I don't know. But in her era, the golden age of movies she was the best, and in my opinion, she is STILL the best. She stands alone.

Shirley could act, she could sing, she could dance, had a nice personality and she was cute...unlike those Olsen twins. True her movies weren't made for men, but that was hollywoods fault, she acted her part to perfection.

Definitely a five. I did an oral report on her, and she was the best. She won four years simultaneously as the best actress. She boosted the low spirits during the Great Depression. As a child actress, no one has ever matched her. Even the new movie on Shirley Temple is just plain boring next to this sparkling prodigy. She can make you cry and laugh, and she is so adorable. Truly, she does stand in a rating of her own.

I have to give her a 5. She is easily the most recognised child actress there is. She was most famous in the 1930s when the USA was at is lowest and had a way of brightening up the world. Although she was pretty good as an actress her biggest talent to me was her dancing. wow could that little girl dance. her singing was fine pretty much like a little kid would sing. Just the fact that even in 2003, she still has some popularity to her is something. I think thanks to videos and tv. more generations can love this sweet little girl who could tap up a storm.

Shirley was the archetype for child actors. I really don't think there's been better. Close, but not better. I wish her adolescent movie 'Kathleen' would be released.

i do think shirley temple is an awsome actor because she was always optimistic and was very good at acting.But i feel very sorry for her because she did all that just for her mother.But i congragulate her for doing so well and for being so talented and happy. I dont think anyone could become another shirley temple.

The most amazing child actress has got to be Shirley Temple. What can she not do? Ever since I was little I was so fascinated by her talent. She was funny, adorable, and just plain entertaining. She could match any adult that acted alongside her. I have the utmost respect for child actors becuase it's so difficult. I'm very proud of Shirley though for going on to do even greater things in her life. Thanks for the laughs!!

Not a huge amount of depth but she was certainly an amazing little dancer. Her films tended to all be pretty much the same - I think of them almost as a series...same character, slightly different premise, always a happy ending. I can easily see the appeal during the depression years and think they're still entertaining decent fare for kids today. I can see why she flopped as an adult actress - nobody really wanted her to grow up.

Shirley was indisputably the best child star of all time. Along with being a top-notch dancer (especially with Bill Bojangles Robinson) her acting was exceptionally above and beyond, and she was right up there with many of the adult stars in her era (Clark Gable, Alice Faye, etc.)..... better have some tissues ready before you sit down to watch her movies!
