2014: Shirley Temple-Black, who started her film career at the age of 3 and starred in hit films such as "Curly Top," "Heidi" and "The Little Princess," dies of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at age 85 in Woodside, California. Her popularity as an entertainer 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.
