Darla Dimple

Child actor Darla Dimple is all peaches and cream outside, all maggots inside. A darling of Hollywood's Golden Age, this changeling easily recalls Shirley Temple's cutesy patootsie shtick. Once outside the public eye, however, Darla morphs into a raging zoophobe with a short fuse.

Watching her does make you wonder if Shirley Temple led a double life. Wild imagination aside, is Shirley still alive? 

Not only that: She has aged as yet a good 85 years. Retired from movies since she was 22, Ms. Temple enjoyed a brief career in television, and later, politics. She most recently served as US ambassador to Czechoslovakia. 

Thought she was dead, eh? Via SAG Awards
