The 1937 Hal Roach short CONSTANCE BENNETT PRESENTS HER DAILY BEAUTY RITUALS is scheduled on TCM on Sunday morning, 5:53 A.M. (eastern).

By the way, I'm sure observant viewers have noticed that the print of this short that TCM runs has an incorrect end title attached. It is the end title from some unknown Educational Pictures film. In the kind of research challenge I welcome I decided to see if I can figure out exactly what Educational film that end title came from. I found that it is from a short called CROSS ROADS, released May 3, 1931, an entry in Educational's "Romantic Journeys" series

Thanks for the heads-up on the Taxi Boys! Although I just don't get Ben Blue, he is ever-so-slowly growing on me. But I'd still take Franklin Pangborn over him any day!

Monday, September 5, 2011, in a regularly scheduled time slot:


8:00-8:30pm - *Below Zero (1930)*, with Laurel & Hardy


This short is 21 minutes, so there should be no excuse for not airing the whole thing, as they did earlier this year.
