Shirley Temple Black, who died Monday night at the age of 85, was the most famous child actor of her era, a successful politician, and the inspiration for a delicious drink to boot.

John Clark Gable, the 52-year-old son of Hollywood legend Clark Gable, was arrested for investigation of drunken driving after allegedly plowing his truck into several parked cars.
His Ford Raptor collided with another vehicle and then smashed into six parked cars along Pacific Coast Highway near the pier in Malibu, Calif., at about 3 p.m. Tuesday, the Los Angeles Times reports.
"It took him a few seconds to get out of his truck," witness Geno Bahena tells KTLA TV. "And finally, when he got out of his truck – I guess he was in shock or something – he just fell on the floor."
