LOS ANGELES, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Turner Classic Movies says it plans to pay tribute to the late Hollywood screen icon and U.S. Ambassador Shirley Temple Black.

The marathon showing of some of her most popular films is to take place March 9.

Known forever as "America's Little Darling," Temple Black died Monday 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," TCM host Robert Osborne said in a statement Tuesday. "There will never be another one like her."

TCM's tribute to Temple Black will include airings of "Heidi," "Stowaway," "Bright Eyes," "The Little Princess" and "The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer."
