Miss Shirley Temple began her film career in 1932 at the age of three. This short entitled "Dora's Dunking Doughnuts" was filmed in 1933.
She retired from films in 1950 as her box-office popularity had waned as she reached adolescence. She was Hollywood's number-one box-office star, 4 years in a row, from 1935 through 1938.
She returned to show business in 1958 with a two-season television anthology series of fairy tale adaptations.
