Shirley Temple's life is quite unique. During the depression era, this little girl made more money than the president of the United States. She lived in the public eyes all her life culminating as an ambassador to Ghana during Pres. Reagan's presidency.

How could you possibly have taken her out of dancing school into Baby Burlesks and call it a TV series???
