Anyone who reads Shirley Temple Black's captivating autobiography, "Child Star", will see the gross errors in Anne Edward's book-including Edwards stating that Shirley met FDR in 1935, when, in fact, the meeting between Shirley Temple and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a very much publicized visit in 1938. Additionally, Edwards maintains that Shirley did not know her real age until age 21, which is not true.

Shirley Temple Black (April 23, 1928 – February 10, 2014) was an American actress, singer, dancer, businesswoman, and diplomat who was Hollywood's number one box-office draw as a child actress from 1935 to 1938. As an adult, she was named United States ambassador to Ghana and to Czechoslovakia, and also served as Chief of Protocol of the United States. Temple began her film career at the age of three in 1932.

This book was very interesting about Shirley Temple. I had no idea that she had done so much acting at such a young age. Her Mom was the driving force and if it wasn't for her, I don't think Shirley would have been in the business at all. It was also interesting reading about her life after the movies and how she went into the diplomatic field after.

good book
lets go baby
Book is fine but didn't work for us. Needed a book for my 7yo read for a report and this was MUCH TOO advanced. It's a huge book with lots of info. Not seller's fault or book's fault.

Anyone who reads Shirley Temple Black's captivating autobiography, "Child Star", will see the gross errors in Anne Edward's book--including Edwards stating that Shirley met FDR in 1935, when, in fact, the meeting between Shirley Temple and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a very much publicized visit in 1938. Additionally, Edwards maintains that Shirley did not know her real age until age 21, which is not true. Although Twentieth Century Fox had shaved a year off her age, upon her thirteenth birthday, Shirley's mom, Gertrude Temple, told her daughter that she was actually 13, not 12 years old. Shortly thereafter, the world also knew--as this was also much publicized. Everyone knew that she was 15 when she started working for David O. Selznick; 16 when she became engaged; 17 years old when she first wed to John Agar; 19 going on 20 when she had her first child, and 21 years old when she filed for divorce. It was not the stunning revelation that Edwards claims at age 21. How grossly incorrect. These are easy things to verify. It makes me wonder what else Edwards got wrong. She certainly missed the fact that Shirley's childhood was a truly happy one, and despite an unfortunate first marriage to John Agar, Shirley Temple went on to lead a happy, productive and loving life--surrounded by her husband Charles Black, their children, Charles, Jr., and Lori (plus, Charles, Sr.adopted her first child by John Agar, Linda Susan), and her grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Whether as Ambassador to Ghana or the Czech Republic, Chief of Protocol, or as a best-selling author, Shirley's life was a very happy, balanced success--not somewhat damaged goods, as Edwards implies. Ironically, Edwards' book was published in the same year that "Child Star" was. By far, "Child Star" is the better book. Edward also uses Shirley Temple's youthful 'autobiography', "My Young Life", as a credible source numerous times; when, in fact, it was not written by Shirley. It was a publicity montage by LOOK Magazine. By far, the most inaccurate is saying that Shirley Temple was a millionaire. The truth is that Shirley learned at age 22 that she had a whopping $44,000 in the bank. She did not harbor resentment against her parents, especially her father, who had handled her money. She cherished her family far more than money and realized that wealth comes in many disguises--like close familial bonds. In summation, the Edwards biography contains quite a bit of disheartening, Temple mythology.

Anne Edwards is such a junk biographer. I do believe it was this book that spurred Shirley to write her own autobiography. According to Shirley "one biography written of me had over 500 factual errors". Most likely it is this one, just by the errors cited in reviewers here. Edwards' biography of Katherine Hepburn is known to be full of mistakes.

A princess she was and it was great to have a child star that we could model our lives after.
Thanks!
