Shirley Temple played Heidi in a movie called…Heidi…and it is forever the movie I will think of when her name is mentioned. My heart pounding a mile a minute in my throat as she screamed through the streets, “GRANDFATHER! GRANDFATHER!” and his calls after her, “HEIDIIIII, HEIDIIII!” as I looked on absolutely. horrified.

What kind of awful people would separate Heidi from her grandfather!?! My God, it was excruciating to watch.

So thank you Shirley Temple…for that lasting performance that will forever bring chills up and down my spine even as an adult.

I will forever be relieved that you were reunited with Grandfather at long last.

And in honor of the late Shirley Temple…cheers, from my Dirty Shirley to yours!:
