TCM Announces Shirley Temple Movie Marathon
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.
