Google honours Hollywood icon Shirley Temple with an animated doodle
Google today shared a doodle celebrating American actor, singer, dancer, and diplomat Shirley “Little Miss Miracle" Temple. The animated doodle features her in three different stages of her life.
In a blog shared, they explained more about this famous personality and also why they selected this particular day to honour her.
The blog explains that on this day in 2015, a special exhibit “Love, Shirley Temple” was opened in Santa Monica History Museum featuring a collection of her rare memorabilia.
Born on April 23, 1928 in Santa Monica, California, Temple started acting at an early age and even became the first child star to receive an Academy Award at the age of six. With her signature dimples, blonde ringlet curls, and strong work ethic, she captivated the whole nation. After a celebrated and successful career, she retired from the movie industry as a Hollywood icon.
It’s, however, not just her acting that she is known for. After ruling the entertainment world she gracefully transitioned into public service and devoted herself in improving the lives of others. Temple was appointed as a representative of the US to the United Nations in 1969. She also became an ambassador to Ghana and was appointed as the first female Chief of Protocol to the State Department.
Screen Actors Guild, in 2006, presented Temple with its Lifetime Achievement Award.
Shirley Temple passed away on February 10, 2014.
