HERE COMES THE GROOM, a Paramount musical comedy with Jane Wyman & Bing Crosby will be back during Oscar month too. It's being used for Jane's SOTM tribute, but the famous Johnny Mercer tune she sings with Bing won an Oscar-- 'In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening.'

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.

Now that we have access to the January schedule, it's easy to see which films will be airing in February for 31 Days of Oscar.

 

Of the string of Hitchcock films airing January 1, some or all of the Paramount titles are sure to repeat in January -- VERTIGO, REAR WINDOW and THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH ('56).

 

THE GRAPES OF WRATH from 20th Century Fox crops up out of the blue in the late night hours on January 2. Count on it getting a better time slot in February. Same goes for JULIA, airing January 6 and NASHVILLE, airing January 28.

 

Yes, VERTIGO and THE GRAPES OF WRATH will certainly be back in February or early March during Oscar programming. So will some of these others, if not all of them. In the past, TCM would lease them from Paramount or Fox for three airings. So they would turn up right before Oscar month, during Oscar month and then again later in the spring. They would get a late night/early morning slot in the initial airing; then hit primetime for Oscar; and usually turn up on a weekend afternoon in the spring after Oscar. I wonder if the rate for leasing them is cheaper if they air at certain times. I don't think anyone has ever asked TCM employees that question.

SUDDEN FEAR is making its TCM premiere in December, so I bet it'll be back in February. Both Crawford and Jack Palance were nominated for it.

 

Any time you see Oscar-nominated or winning films from recent decades on the schedule leading up to February, it's a good bet most of those will be back for 31 Days of Oscar.

 

REDS aired on September 30 during TCM's month-long salute to Gene Hackman. Considering how small Hackman's part in that film is, REDS will surely air again in February. Especially since Warren Beatty's new film, RULES DON'T APPLY, might well be among the contenders at the Oscars this year.

 

Airing this month is MURPHY'S ROMANCE, out of the blue, having not aired on TCM in a few years. James Garner was Oscar-nominated for his performance, so I bet it'll be back in February. Same thing with RAIN MAN, airing in November -- an Oscar-winner that hasn't aired on TCM in several years crops up on a Saturday night in November. It'll repeat in February. Ditto A TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL and A PASSAGE TO INDIA, both airing in December.

 

Yes you can see the scheduling patterns. It used to be that Oscar films outside the TCM/Turner library started appearing in January. But now they are appearing during the month of December-- probably to better coincide with the true start of Oscar season. This means we now have way more than 31 Days of Oscar on TCM.

 

In the case of MURPHY'S ROMANCE, I believe it was supposed to be one of the Essentials for its star Sally Field to introduce with Robert. But as we know, those plans were scrapped.

I think we can tell by looking at the December schedule some of the titles outside the TCM/Turner Library that will be broadcast. For instance, THE LOST WEEKEND is airing in December, and my guess is they acquired it for multiple showings leading into February. Also, if they make Jane Wyman Star of the Month in January on her 100th birthday, it can be shown then as well.

 

CAPE FEAR seems like another film airing in December that will be repeated for 31 Days of Oscar.

 

MAKE FOR TOMORROW and THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL will likely be back on the schedule in February.  SUDDEN FEAR might be, too, since Crawford had an Oscar nomination for it.

How time flies -- next month we'll be getting TCM's schedule for the 2017 edition of the 31 Days of Oscar schedule.

 

What Oscar-winners and nominees of decades past would you like to see included on the lineup for next February?
