Shirley Temple’s Tempest — Celebs Tee Off on Golf Course Over Star

Jan. 27, 1950: It’s difficult to figure out exactly what happened at the Riviera Country Club between actor/golfer Joe Kirkwood Jr. and singer Johnny Johnston. At one time the men and their wives were very chummy, apparently. Then Shirley Temple divorced actor John Agar and there were rumors. Kirkwood and Johnston encountered each other at the Riviera, words were exchanged, etc., etc. Tracked down at a beauty parlor, Temple said she knew nothing about the incident and didn’t care.
