Don't Tell Me to Smile Small Series
Shirley Temple’s scowling persistence continues in the The Don’t Tell Me to Smile series.
As my exploration of Shirley Temple has continued, it has come to light my family tree intersected with the child star, later turned US Ambassador to Czechoslovakia. Turns out my grandfather’s second cousin was Shirley’s first husband, John Agar, also an actor. They had a daughter together before divorcing in 1950.
