Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will pay tribute to Hollywood legend and U.S. Ambassador Shirley Temple Black with a night of her films on Sunday, March 9. Known forever as "America's Little Darling," Temple Black passed away at the age of 85 at her home in Woodside, Calif.
"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," said TCM Host Robert Osborne. "There will never be another one like her."
TCM's tribute to Temple Black will open with a special afternoon showing of the classic Heidi (1937) and will include such beloved favorites as Stowaway (1936), Bright Eyes (1934), The Little Princess (1939) and The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer (1947). The complete schedule is as follows:
