Episode 105 – Who Tried to Kill Shirley Temple?

The strange but true story of how child movie star and “America’s Sweetheart”, Shirley Temple, survived a brush with death on Christmas Eve in 1939 during a live radio show. We share Temple’s own account of the terrifying and bizarre incident, as well as key parts of the original radio broadcast. Was it a clandestine operation by a foreign government? Someone jealous of Temple’s success within the entertainment industry? Or, something much stranger and darker than that? In the episode, we explore the wild, disturbing, and relatively unknown events that had an 11-year-old Shirley Temple looking down the barrel of a gun.
