The U.S. Postal service honors Shirley Temple (1928-2014) with its 20th stamp in the Legends of Hollywood series. Shirley Temple was the world's most famous film star as a child and then went on to a distinguished career in public service and international affairs.

The stamp is a painting by artist Tim O'Brien; it is based on a 1935 image from Curly Top, one of the child star's iconic movie roles. 

Shirley Temple began dance lessons at just three years old and was soon starring in full-length movies.

The Shirley Temple stamp will be issued as a Forever® stamp.
