TCM will remember Shirley Temple Black with programming tribute

Shirley Temple Black passed away at her home yesterday at the age of 85. Although in her adult life she notably served as a U.S. ambassador, Temple Black is probably best remembered as Shirley Temple, the iconic child star of early Hollywood.

Several of Shirley Temple Black’s best-loved films from the 1930s and ’40s will air Sunday, March 9, on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) in tribute to the late actress.

“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 in a release. “There will never be another one like her.”
