Following the death this week of screen siren Lauren Bacall at 89, one channel will go “all-Bacall” for 24 hours leading up to what would have been the movie legend’s 90th birthday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, TCM will run 11 of Bacall’s movies, including all four of those she starred in with husband Humphrey Bogart, in a marathon that kicks off Monday, Sept. 15. The following day, Sept. 16, would have been Bacall’s 90th birthday.

The event will also feature two telecasts of a 2005 “Private Screenings” interview with Bacall by TCM veteran Robert Osborne.

Said Osborne: “Lauren Bacall was a wonderful and generous friend of ours at TCM, and a great connection to the ‘golden age of cinema. Personally, I have to admit that she never failed to make my heart beat faster and my voice to stammer when we spoke. Talk about true star quality — that was Bacall. We are truly blessed to have had her as an integral part of our TCM family.”
