A talented and ultra-adorable entertainer, Shirley Temple was America's top box-office draw from 1935 to 1938, a record no other child star has come near. She beat out such grown-ups as Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, Robert Taylor, Gary Cooper and Joan Crawford.

In 1999, the American Film Institute ranking of the top 50 screen legends ranked Temple at No. 18 among the 25 actresses. She appeared in scores of movies and kept children singing "On the Good Ship Lollipop" for generations.

I thought her to be much older.

RIP Curly Top

Sid Caesar was the original TV king of Saturday night. Caesar, the primetime pioneer behind a breeding ground for comedy known as "Your Show of Shows," has died, his longtime friend and collaborator Carl Reiner confirmed to Yahoo. Caesar was 91.

Talk-show host Larry King, a friend of Caesar's, broke the news of the passing via Twitter.Reiner and fellow filmmakers Woody Allen, and Mel Brooks, along with writers Neil Simon ("The Odd Couple") and Larry Gelbart ("Tootsie," TV's "M*A*S*H") were among those whose careers were nurtured by Caesar; Reiner, Brooks, and Simon got starts on "Your Show of Shows," a 90-minute, live-without-a-net sketch show that aired on Saturday nights and predated the likes of "Saturday Night Live" by decades. Gelbart got his break writing for the subsequent "Caesar's Hour," while Allen worked on later Caesar TV specials.

Brooks offered his fond remembrances of Caesar on Twitter, too:

"He earned his keep on this planet. God bless him," said Bill Murray in a statement. "Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my brilliant, gifted, funny friend, co-writer/performer and teacher Harold Ramis," his "Ghostbusters" co-star Dan Aykroyd wrote. "Ghostbusters" director Ivan Reitman also aknowlaged the passing of "the most agile mind I’ve ever witnessed." And Billy Crystal, who starred in Ramis' "Analyze" movies, called him "A brilliant, funny, actor and director. A wonderful husband and dad. Big loss to us all."

RIP Egon
