In my childhood in the ’60’s, a few years before Seargent Peppers swept me up into its ear-candied Beatlemania, Shirley Temple was my favourite star.
As a little boy in Australia, I believed she was my friend.
She had three fulltime careers in her lifetime:
1. Movie Star
2. Wife and Mother
And today, on the 9th anniversary of her death, I call her an Indigenous Woman Of The Anglosphere.
A Great American.
For all of my English Speaking World.
