    I wonder if they will air her short subject films in between the features (like Dora’s Dunking Donuts, etc.)

    Hopefully, they’ll show them in the original black and white.

      Can anyone verify that these movies with be in B&W & not the hideous colorized versions?

      • Barry O'Brien/Oakland says:

        Turner Classic Movies policy is NOT to show colorized films. I know this is hard to believe since it was Ted Turner who started the trend to colorize old B&W movies, but this was his mea culpa in launching TCM.

    For years, when I was much younger, I thought Shirley and I were the same age. She was my idol, as I am sure she was to a lot of girls that age. Her passing came to me as a shock and I cried. She will always be in my heart…

    Younger people are only now finding out that Shirley Temple was a real person, and not just the name of a drink.
