Shirley Temple Black — actress, singer, dancer and former U.S. ambassador — has died.  She passed away Monday night in her home near San Francisco.

She’s best known for a series of films she did as a child in the 1930s, including ‘Bright Eyes’ and ‘Curly Top’.  She began acting at the age of three. She was given a special Juvenile Academy Award in 1935 when she was only seven years old.

She hosted a couple of children’s TV series in the 1950s. She made some guest appearances on TV shows in the 1960s. She failed in a run for Congress in 1967. But she was appointed ambassador to Ghana in 1974 and ambassador to Czechoslavakia in 1989.

She is No. 18 on the American Film Institute’s list of the greatest female American screen legends of all time.
