After the world mourned the death of legendary child star Shirley Temple, Turner Classic Movies decided to pay tribute to her in the best way possible – a marathon of her best films.
TCM has set a date for its marathon of Shirley Temple’s greatest films on Sunday, March 9th kicking off with her 1937 film Heidi at 4:30pm.
“Shirley Temple was a good friend and an extraordinary human being who, after being the most famous person in the world at age 6 and Hollywood’s pint-sized Queen at age 7, grew up to be such a lovely, civic-minded citizen, wife and mother, as well as the U.S. Ambassador to two countries,” TCM Host Robert Osborne said in a statement via Hollywood Reporter. “There will never be another one like her.”
Temple died on Feb. 10 at the age of 85.
