Her first big hit was when she starred in Bright Eyes then followed up playing in Curly Top and Heidi. From 1935 through 1938 she was the top box office star and most recognized child star all around the world. After she retired from the movies in 1951 she returned to hosting and acting in NBC new series called "Shirley Temple's Storybook".
