Shirley Temple

Shirley Temple Black (born April 23, 1928),

 

is an American film and television actress, singer, dancer, autobiographer, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. She began her film career in 1932 at the age of four (thought by the public to be three) and in 1934, skyrocketed to superstardom in Bright Eyes, a feature film designed specifically for her talents.

She received a special Academy Award in February 1935, and film hits such as Curly Top and Heidi followed year after year during the mid to late 1930s.

 

Licensed merchandise that capitalized on her wholesome image included dolls, dishes, and clothing.

 

Her box office popularity waned as she reached adolescence, and she left the film industry at the age of 12 to attend high school. She appeared in a few films of varying quality in her mid to late teens, and retired completely from films in 1950 at the age of 22. She was the top box-office draw four years in a row (1935–38) in a Motion Picture Herald poll

 

Temple returned to show business in 1958 with a two-season television anthology series of fairy tale adaptations. She made guest appearances on various television shows in the early 1960s and filmed a sitcom pilot that was never released. She sat on the boards of many corporations and organizations including The Walt Disney Company, Del Monte Foods, and the National Wildlife Federation. In 1967, she ran unsuccessfully for United States Congress, and was appointed United States Ambassador to Ghana in 1974 and to Czechoslovakia in 1989. In 1988, she published her autobiography, Child Star. Temple is the recipient of many awards and honors including Kennedy Center Honors and a Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award.

That’s Entertainment!

That’s Entertainment! is a 1974 compilation film released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to celebrate its 50th anniversary. It was followed by two sequels and a related film called That’s Dancing!.

The film, compiled by its writer-producer-director, Jack Haley, Jr.  under the supervision of executive producer Daniel Melnick, turned the spotlight on MGM’s legacy of musical film from the 1920s through the 1950s, featuring performances culled from dozens of the studio’s famous films.

and many others was featured.

Released during the height of the Watergate scandal and just after the Vietnam war, That’s Entertainment! was marketed with a tagline of “Boy, do we need it now!” The idea of celebrating the happy-go-lucky musicals of an earlier era hit a nerve with a nostalgic public; That’s Entertainment! was hailed by critics and would become one of the top twenty highest-grossing films of 1974.

The film was compiled in various segments hosted by a succession of the studio’s legendary stars:

 Frank Sinatra

Gene Kelly

Fred Astaire

and others like: Peter Lawford, Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Mickey Rooney, Bing Crosby, James Stewart, Elizabeth Taylor, and Liza Minnelli.

Most of the hosts were filmed on MGM’s famous backlot, which looks disturbingly ramshackle and rundown in this film, because MGM had sold the property to developers and the sets were about to be demolished (several of the stars, including Bing Crosby, remark on this during their segments). The most notable degradation can be seen when Fred Astaire revisits the ruins of a train station set that had been used in the opening of The Band Wagon two decades earlier, and when Peter Lawford revisits exteriors used in his late-40s musical, Good News. That’s Entertainment! was the last major project to be filmed on the backlot.

Over the years, under the leadership of Louis B. Mayer and others, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has produced a series of musical films whose success and artistic merit remain unsurpassed in motion picture history. There were literally thousands of people …. artists, craftsmen and technicians …. who poured their talents into the creation of the great MGM musicals. This film is dedicated to them.

Sharon Tate

Sharon Marie Tate (January 24, 1943 – August 9, 1969) was an American actress. During the 1960s she played small television roles before appearing in several films. After receiving positive reviews for her comedic performances, she was hailed as one of Hollywood’s promising newcomers and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her performance in Valley of the Dolls (1967). She also appeared regularly in fashion magazines as a model and cover girl.

Married to film director Roman Polanski in 1968, Tate was eight and a half months pregnant when she and her unborn child were murdered in her home, along with four others, by followers of Charles Manson.

A decade after the murders, Tate’s mother, Doris, in response to the growing cult status of the killers and the possibility that any of them might be granted parole, organized a public campaign against what she considered shortcomings in the state’s corrections system. It resulted in amendments to the California criminal law in 1982, which allowed crime victims and their families to make victim impact statements during sentencing and at parole hearings.

Doris Tate was the first person to make such an impact statement under the new law, when she spoke at the parole hearing of one of her daughter’s killers, Charles “Tex” Watson. She believed changes in the law had afforded her daughter dignity that had been denied her before, and that she had been able to “help transform Sharon’s legacy from murder victim to a symbol of victims’ rights”.
