The complete line-up can be found below:

“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 statement. “There will never be another one like her.”

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

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

      • 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.
