I didn't care for these, and I am glad that TCM is not running them very much anymore. I did not feel they belonged on TCM. And often the interview/clips featured stars whose movies seldom, if ever, play on TCM. Like when was the last time we saw a film starring Mary Tyler Moore on TCM...?


They also kept rerunning the one with Johnny and Drew Barrymore. Yes, it was cute and yes Drew was then co-hosting Essentials with Robert Osborne. But none of her movies are ever broadcast on TCM.


It was an interesting idea that did not really work, in my esteemed opinion.

"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.
