Shirley Temple Black Injured In Fall

LOS ANGELES (NOvember 2, 2006) — Child actress-turned-international diplomat Shirley Temple Black broke her wrist in a fall “a few weeks ago,” her publicist said Wednesday.

Black, 78, is still wearing a cast on her right arm, said Rick Ross.

“She’s fine,” he said. “She’s doing great.”

The accident happened at Black’s Northern California home, Ross said.

Black, who retired from acting when she was 21, was recognized in January by the Screen Actors Guild with a lifetime achievement award.
