Shirley Temple will be honored on Sunday, March 9, 2014 on TCM.

Even at the age of 85, Shirley Temple Black still had that unmistakable smile and curly hair that made her famous so many years ago. Sadly, “America’s Little Darling” passed away Monday, February 10 at her home in Woodside, California.

To honor the former child star, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will hold a mini-marathon of Shirley Temple movies on the network all day on Sunday, March 9. “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 will begin at 4:30 p.m. with Temple’s classic Heidi followed by seven other favorite films. The complete schedule is as follows:

  • 4:30 p.m. – Heidi (1937)
  • 6:15 p.m. – Stowaway (1936)
  • 8:00 p.m. – Bright Eyes (1934)
  • 9:30 p.m. – The Little Princess (1939)
  • 11:15 p.m. – I’ll Be Seeing You (1944)
  • 12:45 a.m. – The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer (1947)
  • 2:30 a.m. – A Kiss For Corliss (1949)
  • 4:15 a.m. – That Hagen Girl (1947)
