Probably. I will continue to keep an eye out for it. 

Maybe it will be on the November schedule. We should be getting the information during the coming week.


"You've had a few hours given back to you from life. A few hours in which to change your minds and your hearts. When you came into the grounds of this inn, you came into a place as it was a year ago today. You were in your own time, but the house and garden and Gwyneth and I are in the time of last year. The day the bomb hit. When you go away and walk up the road you will have spent a night in an inn. But if you look back from the crest of the hill, the halfway house will not be here...but if you remember, it will be as you remember a forgotten snatch of song. It will be a picture before your eyes. Gone before you realize it is there. Or an echo in the hidden places of your mind. But you have been here...and the world is what you make it." -- Mervyn Johns, THE HALFWAY HOUSE.

You probably just missed it. While I don't think it's been broadcast since the Gamer memorial tribute, it did air once or twice in the year preceding his death-- because I recorded it. Since TCM's programmers are fond of Garner, it has a good chance of turning up again.

I see. Thank you. I've seen these other films show up at least once or twice over the years but "The Wheeler Dealers" never seems to for whatever reason.

Has this ever been shown on TCM? I remember catching part of it on TV a few years ago, but I can't remember the channel. 

 

The plot has James Garner as a Texas Oils Tycoon who comes to New York and falls for a stock analyst played by Lee Remick. Hilarity ensues as he tries to woo her. 

 

Co-stars John Astin and Chill Wills.
